The cursor disappears from the screen

0 Kudos

I need some help. I am running SAP GUI 7.70 on Windows 11.

When I open the new ABAP editor from SE38 and write code, the mouse cursor disappears from the screen after a while. I can't write code. The cursor disappears from the screen, especially when I select multiple lines (key alt + mouse).

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the SAP GUI, but the problem persists.

I am using the latest version of SAP but the error has not been fixed.

Please suggest if anyone has a solution for this.

I have the sameissue.

When I want to move in edit to another line or variable I dont see the pointer.

First whe I click it shows up then I have to guess the required position

Hi Tom,

I fixed the problem long ago. If I remember correctly;

1- I formatted my computer

2-I reinstalled SAP LOGON.
