still watching my cursor meander its way through the rest of the file.  THANKFULLY THE CHAPTERS OF THIS BOOK ARE SHORT.

The thing that makes me think it might be that the program stumbles over my set-up, is that I have 2 mice (I have hand problems, so I switch back and forth) and a foot pedal.  So I mix and match key stroke commands - I can hit the space bar from either the foot switch or the keyboard, and I can place the cursor with either mouse - which is usually combined with some keystroke or other, like 'hold down the shift key in order to select the section you're bracketing'......

so yeah - it's a lot of possible inputs to confuse the software with.

hokay....lets see if I can get back to work here....
