I've used the Lotus Suite for years and love it, but over the last year or two have had an occasional problem occur with using the arrow keys in 123. Normally the Right, Left, Up, or Down arrow keys should move the cursor one cell in each of those directions. Every now and then, however, for reasons I've never been able to fathom, 123 suddenly changes so that those same arrow keys don't move the cursor (e.g., if the cursor was on D12, it remains on D12 when any arrow key is used), but instead move the screen one column Right or Left, or one row Up or Down, depending on which arrow key is used. Then, after plaguing me for several hours or days, the arrow keys magically resume their normal functions and all is well again.
This is profoundly annoying, so I'll be profoundly grateful if someone can tell me why this is happening, why it starts to happen each time without my consciously doing anything to make it start, and most important, how I can fix it and prevent it from happening again.
Many thanks in advance for any and all help.
P.S. - This happened several times on my old XP machine and now again on my W7 Pro, 64-bit machine, so it doesn't seem to be machine-related or OS-related.
