When I drag text from another application to Scrivener, the cursor disappears. This happens even when I drag text between Scrivener projects.

Thanks, we've already been taking a look into this and should have it fixed for the next update.

I had open the binder, corkboard on one document panel, and open document in another. I *think* I used the shift or control key to highlight some text for italics. The cursor locked up and neither mouse nor arrow keys would move it. They did, however, cause the focus to move among header bars and even act as undo/redo keys would. So somehow I must have triggered a key-combo that navigates on that level, rather than within the document. I had to close and reopen Scrivener to get back to editing the document. It has not recurred.

Jen/team,

This sounds like another version of the cursor lock-up I had in inspector footnotes, which I reported a few days ago.
