Opening and closing palettes causes problems with shortcuts
When I open palettes, do what I need to do from within palettes, then close it, none of my shortcuts work, nor can I begin play with the space bar. It's not until I open and close palettes again that everything returns to normal. If I open palettes and close it, without doing anything, everything works fine.
Maybe I should just leave palettes open all the time? By the way, I have a Mac.
