Forgive me if I don't use the right terms when explaining my problem.
Here is my scenario. When I am in the Library in Lightroom, for example, I have a number of pictures displayed in the middle of my screen. I have my keywords section in the right panel expanded so that I can click a picture to highlight it and then move my mouse to the right to click off the keywords in the list to add them. As I move the mouse right and left over the dividing line between the library and the right panel, the mouse doesn't change to the "single" arrow, rather it stays an arrow that points left and right. This is the arrow that it changes to when you want to drag that dividing line to make the panel wider or narrow. I can have my pointer as a single arrow and then click to select a picture and then move my mouse right very fast to the keyword area and as soon as it crosses that dividing line, it becomes this double sided arrow pointer. If I move the mouse right and left extremely fast, then most of the time it will be a single arrow when I mouse over the keywords. But I shouldn't have to move the mouse that fast in order to have a proper looking arrow. By the way, I can still click to add the keywords with this double sided arrow. Even as I move up and down over the keywords to select different keywords, the arrow won't change back to a single arrow until I move back over the pictures to select a new picture. Then it is a single arrow until I move back over to the keywords. I would like to point out that this has been the behavior since since I started using v5 with Win7. I have reinstalled and started from scratch a few times and now that I have Win10 and a clean install and new database using the Creative Cloud, I still see it. I hope I explained the issue so that you understand what I am seeing. I also hope that you can resolve this issue soon. Thanks.
