Deflector and Force buttons not working

When I hover over the Deflector and Force buttons in PI the drop-down for “Add…” appears underneath, but as I move the mouse to select, the “Add…” disappears making it impossible to add a force or deflector to the stage. If I click the Force or Deflector buttons they grey out making them look inactive. They still behave as described above.

Hi there!

When you click on either the deflector or force button, the program expects you to click in the stage to add a point so when the button is greyed out, this means that the tool is active and waiting or user input. The hover pop-up is only a tooltip and not an actionable item, ie, you can’t really click on it and expect it to do anything.

Ah, problem solved. That was not very intuitive, I suppose I should have watched some tuts. Thank you.
