Problem with mouse running bw9 on a new iMac with the cordless mouse
can anyone help me? I just recently purchased a new widescreen iMac OS X Lion version 10.7.3 and just installed BW9 with Parallels and Windows 7 32-bit. BW9 works pretty well, BUT:
the mouse goes scrolls erratically and too fast when I am scrolling in the Context or Words window (in the Analysis section).
Also, when I want to scroll in the Context or Words window, I have to click on that section in order for BW to know that I am switching. It doesn't intuitively know I want to work in that section simply because I hover my mouse over that section (the way it does when I use Accordance in the Mac side. This is frustrating because I don't want to click on the Analysis window because I have to inadvertently click on a word which then automatically runs a search on that word, thus changing the search window results.
Is this a BW issue, a mouse setting issue on Windows 7, or a Parallels issue or something else?
I appreciate anyone who has experienced this obstacle and overcome it who might share how they did it, or even just let me know that I am not the only one, or that your system does not have this problem (running the same systems and version of BW).
The answer to the problem
I think the answer is that BW9- for some reason- does not allow you to just click on the scroll bar to switch dialogue boxes. I tried switching dialogue boxes on sword on the same windows 7 on Parallels on Mac and I don't have to click inside the dialogue boxes to start scrolling in a different box. This deficiency leads to unwanted searches when trying to switch to the Words box or context box in the analysis window. You have to manually scroll by clicking on the scroll bar up/down arrows. You can't use your mouse to scroll unless you don't mind clicking on a word and thus running a search and changing your search results list. Hopefully BW can fix this soon.

I have a question about using Windows OS on a Mac. One of my reasons for considering converting to a Mac is the decreased possibility of getting a virus, or at least that is what I am being told and am hearing as I do my research. My question is, does having a Windows OS on your Mac open up your Mac to the same issues I find on PC's? I am definitely going to get BibleWorks, but I curious as to whether it is worth the additional cost to get the Mac Pro if I can possibly have the same issues my PC's have had.
