I recently purchased scrivener for windows after having used it on Mac. I'm having a debilitating issue where clicking inside the text editor or any other section keeps me from clicking anything else. At this point clicks on folders or other files in the "Binder" section as well as the formatting toolbar does nothing except arbitrarily move the insertion point in the text window. I have to click outside the window to reset it. Sometimes it gets completely screwed so I have to restart scrivener.

See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9Y4Cwm2_nM

I'm using the latest scrivener v2.

FYI, the latest version for Windows (other than the Beta for Scrivener 3) is v. 1.9.7.
