"Hand Tool" got stuck on Windows 8.1 Pro system!

Post by gate1975mlm » Tue Dec 17, 2013 3:55 pm

Hello :)

I finally got a great deal on a copy of Windows 8.1 Pro so I did a clean install on my notebook last night.

Anyway after I installed PDF-XChange Editor 3.0 306.1 something strange happened that I never saw happen before on Windows 7. The first time I opened PDF-XChange Editor I noticed that the Hand Tool got stuck and would not go away. Even when I moved the mouse cursor over the above toolbar the Hand Tool remained. So I could not even shut down PDF-XChange Editor because the Hand Tool was showing. The Hand Tool was even showing when I moveed my mouse cursor off PDF-XChange Editor and on other windows 8.1 windows. The only way I was able to shut down PDF-XChange Editor was to click CTRL ALT Delete and then from then click task manager and some how I got it to shut down. Luckily this has only happen one time so far so I hope it was just a freak thing and will not happen again. But I thought I better report it in case it is a bug when running PDF-XChange Editor on Windows 8.1.

Have any of you ever had this happen before?

Hi gate1975mlm,

This is the first report I've seen of such a behaviour, so unless it happens again for you - let's count it as an odd non-reproducible bug.
