Thank you for your post.
On my Dell Dimension, running Windows XP sp3, I was unable to duplicate the problem. When I go into Edit, my cursor is available. The same occurs for my iMac running OS X 10.5.6.
Is there something else that I can try with the Event Management solution?
Anybody else able to reproduce?
