Right-Clicks and Double-Clicks don't work in LC8

Hi Björnke

Thanks for the detailed reply and yes, I guess I shouldn't run BVG docu with 8! Almost for sure I have an old version in any case. Strangely, there must have been some interaction as when it was the only plugin then the error occurred. Of course, it's also possible that I'm doing something strange...

Thanks again for the reply!

cheers

Alan

Still, even that version would not act on mousedown or somesuch, but instead on the message emitted by the IDE stack, and is by default disabled, so even that would be highly unlikely. Again, this code does not even exist in bvg docu 2.
