> Hi all. 
> Release 6.6.1 is no bueno. Try this: Launch 6.6.1. Open a new stack. Drag a combo box into the stack. Double click the combo box to get properties. Do you get the property inspector? I don’t. 
> Now do the same thing, only this time, drag a regular push button into the new stack and double click. NOW you get the property inspector, and dragging a new combo box and double clicking it will give you the property inspector as well. 
> Seems if the combo box is the first thing you get properties for after a launch, you will not get the properties inspector at all for anything, but if you get properties for something else first, the property inspector seems to work fine. 
> If you do this after you have been running for a while, chances are you will have already gotten the property inspector for something else and the test will be no good. I have already removed all the plugins so that is not an issue. 
> If others can reproduce this, I will submit a bug report. I am running Mavericks 10.9.2 on a 15” Macbook Pro. 


Confirmed here on Mtn Lion 10.8.5 and LC 6.6.1. Mac-only bug, maybe?

When I double click the combo box to show the prop inspector the cursor changes to watch, but nothing happens. When I add another control type, it all starts working just like you said.
