    The cursor bug I reported for 2018.12.4 (after a few commands the cursor does not change to smart tool cursors) is still there...

    Ramster92, I noticed this in 12.4 but didn't have time to report it. I also opened a case for the same thing in 2018.12.5. It happens after you render a few times. The mouse cursor no longer changes from the computer default no matter what tool you are using. You must restart the application to get it to come back. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    The patch did not install. I got an error message 

    "Database: Transformation: One line is not available and cannot be updated. Table: RemoveFile"

    I uninstalled MC2018.12.3 and re-installed it, however, the patch still creates the same error.


    Why do we not get a full installer?
