My spin button doesnt work.

Clicking on the arrows highlights the control, showing its handles
and anchor, but does nothing to the linked cell.

The dialog for configuring the control has no "ok" button,
its only exit is the cross in the top right hand corner.
When focus is in the cell link box, clicking on a cell in the spreadsheet
does not cause that cell address to appear in the box; it has to be typed
in. After being typed in, it shows there, and seems to be remembered;
however its not used; nothing happens to the cell.

Clicking on the control ony causes the control to be highlited, similar to
a right click on the control in excel.

I assume the spinner works, as I see others referring to it, and not mentioning
that it don't work - please what is the trick to get it working?

thanks for any help

On opening the file again after reboot, the behaviour changed:

the linked cell (wrong one, a test) now increments and decrements
the control now cannot be formatted with right click, right click now
does the same as left click

the forms controls toolbar has almost everthing greyed out

is this happening because I am using 32 bit software on 64 bit os?

This happens when "Design Mode" is turned On.
The "Form Controls" toolbar has a button showing ruler, set square and pencil. When this button is highlighted "Design Mode" is On. Turn "Design Mode" Off and the control will work.
