    Using Win 7 executable. Everything works ok, but cannot change any values in text fields.

    Tried again in Ubuntu Linux and running the PDE file from Processing works fine. No cursor so a little confusing, but to change values:

    1) Click on the field
    2) hit “enter” to clear the value
    3) type in new value
    4) hit SEND_DASH or SAVE_PREFERENCES to send the update to osPID.

    interesting. I’m developing on a windows7 box and haven’t seen anything like this. can you try this procedure and tell me if it works?

    1: click on the field (Setpoint, say)
    2: backspace to clear the value
    3: type in the new value and hit Enter
    4: click the corresponding “Send” button to get the values down into the osPID. for the setpoint this would be Send_Dash.

    there may be a big-boy-java front-end in the future. the fact of the matter is that it was far quicker to just port the existing PIDLibrary front-end, than to start over from scratch.

    There is another bug that I cannot reproduce everytime: when I try and click to edit a form field, it becomes a drag and droppable item! And there is no editing allowed on it, but I can drag it around….

    Here is a screenshot of it happening:

    Will try and pinpoint where it’s happening!

    this is actually part of the controlp5 library. I haven’t looked into turning it off. I believe it’s alt+rightclick drag that does it
