Hi Jackie,There have been no architectural changes in EdSharp in the last couple years, so I suspect the problem is related to either the .NET Framework or JAWS. Of course, if anyone can isolate steps that reproduce such a problem, I will try to fix it. At this point, however, nothing comes to mind about how such behavior might occur. EdSharp does not monitor other application windows, for example.

Closing ff doesn't usually help. Sometimes I gotta unload jaws or close EdSharp. I've particularly noticed in this last version that there are just times when cursoring in the document fails to work & exiting is the only cure for that. So I can't confirm what Laura says as I've never had EdSharp's help come up but I can confirm some weird interaction between EdSharp & other programs.

The context was that I was not running edsharp at the time, so F1 would not have called up edsharp docs. I was running Word. It seems to be working properly today however. My system sometimes gets intostrange states that I haven't been able to diagnose. This one involved

Thanks for asking. No, EdSharp has no ad ware. If the documentation came up in a web browser, perhaps you hit the F1 key.

I ask because I have been using it lately, but not today -- however just now I was editing a word document and was whisked off to a web page about edsharp. I closed that window, but I honestly don't know where it came from. I was typing a sentence into a document. If it happens again I''ll take note of what is on the page. It could have been part of the edsharp help file. I doubt that though, as I just rebooted and went straight to my Word file. My system is trashed in more ways than one, but it surprises me to get a popup window of something like edsharp.
