Hi,
I'd like to help but I'm not understanding the problem, can you give a more detailed description of the process?
It would help to see your workflow, the behavior, and where to look for this issue. There is a free video recorder called http://www.jingproject.com. Please make us a video of the issue. Jing allows you to upload the video to a website called http://www.Screencast.com, for free. Jing places a link to the video onto your computers clipboard. Simply paste that link into a reply to this post and we can then watch it and provide a solution to the problem.

Cheers,
Volker
