Can't type in Code::Blocks
« on: May 12, 2018, 08:11:41 pm »
I recently reinstalled Code::Blocks after previously having it on my computer.  The problem is that after the install, I can't type in the code window at all.  I hate to bother the people on this forum but I'm not sure what to do.

I'm using Windows 10 on PC.

Is the code window visible?

If you click on the code window, does the cursor show up blinking in the window?

The code window is visible, but clicking on it does nothing, including no cursor.

Try bringing up a new code window.

Menu "Settings"
Select "Edit startup script"

NOTE: Do not edit this script file!

Does the cursor show up in this window?
