In any of the HG 3 versions I’ve never had this issue come up, but in the new HG 18.104.22.168, I have a lock-up problem every other time I do a report.
At some point in the report I’ll be typing a comment and all of a sudden the comment box with whatever I’m typing will just start rapid blinking on and off on the screen. **When that happens sometimes my mouse locks up - other times it doesn’t. But it seems to lock-up all functions in HG every single time this occurs. **
Once in awhile if I click my mouse elsewhere on the screen it will let me get out of there BUT most of the time when this starts, it keeps me in one spot and no mater where else I click including the tool bar nothing happens. I finally end up shutting the computer off. Then after waiting a few minutes turning it back on to try to go on.
Sometimes when I turn it back on and go back into HG its like nothing happened and I can go back to where I was and keep going. But about 1/2 the time when I get back to where I was it does it again. Then I end up redoing the report on another computer with HG 3 installed.
There is no 1 section this occurs at every time - sometimes I’m in plumbing when it starts / other times it will be in roofing. Whats real funny is that it will only do this at 1 section of a report each time it happens - ALL other sections are just fine and it never seems to be the same section that locks me up the next time out.
This has put me doing reports 2 and 3 times and taking 4-5 hours for an inspection report recently. If anybody has any thoughts I’m open. Otherwise I’m probably going back to HG 3.
My field computer is the Acer C-113 with Windows XP an 1 MB Ram.
