Text box set up - spurious grey box

Hi,

On setting up a text box in Webanimator 3 plus, (3.0.02), I then double left click the word 'Text' in the top left hand corner of the Text Box.

This obviously highlights the selection.

On then right clicking the highlighted word to paste etc to replace the contents, a spurious grey box appears.....
No options are presented i.e. Cut, Paste, Copy etc and I have to use keyboard shrtcuts (ctrl + v etc).

The grey box just sits there doing nothing, offering nothing and frankly suggesting that the software is significantly unstable.

I have had Webanimator for a number of months but only now am I starting to use it seriously and this is the THIRD topic I have posted on in three days.

I am a serious web developer more used to CSS, HTML, Javascript etc and was hoping that Webanimator would aid in my productivity.

There seems to be a fair degree of instability and I am loathe to use this for serious development.

I attach a couple of pictures of the issue.

Pic Webanim3 shows the issue itself.....however Webanim4 demonstrates another feature of the issue. The strange grey box is NOT attached to the Webanimator dialogue or structure.

If I move the background stage, timeline window, the grey box does not move and remains in view in other windows and programs until I close webanimator.

In the final attachment Webanim5, you can see the grey box still present while I am calling up a blog post in Word.

Thanks

Matt

Do you have any approximate timescale for the next/fix update?
