    Can we still use the arrow buttons in Ver 6 to move the text or elements?

    I've tried but they aren't working. May be my Win XP but figured I'd ask. It's great for lining up things exactly.

    You need to enable MOUSE KEYS in Windows. There is a slight learning curve, but I've done it, and became quite proficient at it--- I now keep it running in the background all the time just in case my cordless mouse stops working, and I can't find my backup usb mouse.

    MouseKeys is designed for people who have difficulty using a mouse. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad to control the mouse pointer. If you want to use the numeric keypad for data entry as well as for navigation, you can set the MouseKeys to be activated by pressing NUM LOCK.

    Open Accessibility Options
    To open Accessibility Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Accessibility Options

    2.
    On the Mouse tab, under MouseKeys, select the Use MouseKeys check box.
    To turn off MouseKeys, clear the Use MouseKeys check box.

    To turn on MouseKeys using keystrokes
