Press the Select key on the affected operator panel twice to remedy the error.

"Virtual operation - Cursor selection blocked in graphic displays" resolves the following:
- Operator Station
When an operator panel is used on which the select mode was running previously, it is not possible to position the cursor in a graphic display using the mouse or the light pen, or to select a function.
However, it is possible to select in the header of the insert display. This does not affect controlling the cursor using the trackball and the keyboard (arrow keys).
The underlying cause is:
- Incorrect initialization of the select mode
When the confi-dialog is started or the station is reset, the select mode for the relevant operator panel is not initialized correctly. During virtual operating the use of the mouse and the light pen is restricted in select mode.
