Map 3D 2012 Window looses focus when using Acad-functions

hello community!

i have a problem.

When i use standard Acad-functions or even simply

select an object like a polyline from land-survey,

the "ribbon" changes to the corresponding Topic of the object,

and the Map3D window looses its focus. (normal windows-mouse-cursor is displayed,

not the AutoCAD crosshair). After clicking in Map 3D window again, crosshair reappears,

and work can continue.

It doesn't matter if Map3d-windows is in windowed mode or fullscreen,

it also doesn't matter if the windows is only on one of my 2 monitors or on both.

didn't have this problems using Topobase Client 2009,2010,2011...

but since 2012 few problems evolved... (drawing-order-bug, memory-leak problem etc. etc.)

quality of the software product Topobase or "Map 3D" is getting worse and worse....

do you have installed the latest service-packs?

have you opened the property-window? ...and if so does the problem also occure if you have the poperty-window closed or minimized or undocked?

Alfred, you're my man.

After closing the properties window (which was fixed displayed under the legend on the right)

the issue is gone.

THX so much man!
