Table Field click causing freeze and phantom field appears

I am using LC 9.02 Community Edition on Mac OSX 10.11.5 and have a table field with the properties show in the attachments. The field consists of lines with two columns of data where column 1 data is tab separated from column 2.

Whenever I am am running the application (Browse Mode) and click into a cell LC seems to freeze. I use Cmd . to stop the application running and switch the pointer tool. Now I can see a small field (Phantom?) in front of the table which wasn't there before. If I delete this field then I can carry on.

So it seems that there is some issue with clicking in a cell of a table field. I think I saw this in past versions and not sure if its a re-introduced problem.

Anybody else seeing this.

That is pretty wierd, something like the issue with cells raugert found, where they would appear randomly if not pre-filled.

I wonder if the two are related :roll:

Hi,

disable the "cell editing", and be sure to never have enabled it anywhere.
This never really worked.

Have fun!

This cripples other aspects of the table field. Try to "massage" your field per the later handlers in the above thread. Please write back if that solves the problem.
