I'm absolutely not familiar with typing chinese so I need some additional hints to reproduce what you've seen. What IME are you using ? The one provided by Microsoft or some 3rd party IME ? On my XP system I tried Chinese (simplified) - Microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0 and could not reproduce any cursor problems. But may be you are using the IME in a different way. Does the cursor disappear after doing some selection or expansion with the IME ?

I'm using the one provided by Microsoft in XP. I'm using pinying. I really don't know when this error happens. It seems to happen most of the time. THere are some exceptions however. I can't catch the sequence.

OK, I just figured the problem. When using pinying of Windows' IME (in XP, and probably 2000 also), after you've typed the pinying and selected a word with that pinying, then, (depends on your setting,) there may be a list of word(s) that pop up showing you a list of "frequently used word(s)". If you just type Ctrl-Shift to switch back to English input, the cursor will disappear. Else, if you select a word from the list, the list will disappeared and the word will be input on your document. Then the cursor will still be there. Let me attatch an image to show you the list, which may help to understand the problem hopefully.

OK, I figured the problem. When using Chiense pinying of WIndows' IME to input Chinese, a list of words will appear for you to choose from. If you actually select a word, then it's ok. If you close the list without selecting a word (by either switching to English language input or pressing ESC or blackspace), then this prolem occurs. This problem doesn't exist on all other programs I've tried (Mozilla, ICQ, MSN, notepad, etc).

You should have mentioned that you were using traditional chinese... My Windows XP actually didn't have an appropriate IME so installed one from http://office.microsoft.com/downloads/2002/imecht.aspx and could reproduce the loss of the blinking cursor. I just typed the letter 'k' followed by SPACE, then cursor left and the blinking cursor disappears but the letter is underlined. On cursor down I get a selection list. When I select something the cursor starts blinking again. If I dismiss the selection, the cursor does not start blinking.

All Windows XPs should have the same components. Just that the "default installation packages" are difference. You should be able to install the IME through any XP cd. I had used English XP before and it does have the IME on XP's CD. That's why I didn't mension about it. Yes yes. If you select something, everything is fine. But if you dismiss the list by pressing ESC etc, then the problem occurs.

Wait, are you talking about the mouse pointer? I'm not talking aobut that. I am talking about the cursor that indicates where your next character will be inputed.

Hi, just wonder. How's this problem now?

Because of limited resources this task have to re-targeted to target 'OOo Later'. If somebody can be found, who cna implement this task, it can be re-targeted to OOo 2.0.
