Pervasive caret mouse cursor

I often find the caret mouse icon to appear when i place the mouse over GUI elements that have nothing to do with text editing (status bar, lateral video/audio headers and so on). It's only me?

    Are you sure it's the caret and not the "resize panel" cursor?

    Well, it's the vertical bar with capped ends that appears where you hover on a text field. Yes, i'm pretty sure. Looks like there is a situation when the mouse cursor is set to the caret icon and not reset. I must investigate further to understand when it happens, but it happens frequently to me.

    Ok, I ask because the resize panel widget is pretty similar to the caret, except with a double center-bar.

    Otherwise I haven't encountered this bug myself--or, if I have, i just haven't noticed it. I'll keep my eyes open. :-)

  • I have had this happen, but not exclusively in HitFilm, and only rarely. I always thought it to be a windows bug with certain UI libraries.
