Part 1: GENERAL NOTES
=====================

1.1  Using IntelliMouse with a Switch Box

     If you use a switch box to connect your IntelliMouse pointing
     device to two or more computers, be sure to install
     IntelliPoint 2.0 on both machines.  Otherwise, your IntelliMouse 
     pointing device may work erratically, or the wheel and wheel
     button may stop functioning. 

     In addition, do not move your mouse while switching between
     computers, or you may lose the wheel and wheel button functions.
     Restart your computer if the wheel and wheel button stop working.

     If you experience other problems with the switch box, it may be 
     due to the way the switch box passes through the mouse data.  
     Contact your switch box supplier for support.


1.2  Using an External Mouse with a Laptop Computer

     Some laptop computers enable you to use both an internal and
     external pointing device at the same time.  If you find that the
     external mouse works erratically, or you lose the wheel and wheel
     button functionality (if it is an IntelliMouse pointing device),
     change the system settings on the laptop to have the system
     automatically detect the external pointing device before the 
     internal pointing device.  If your laptop computer does not
     support automatic detection, you can also try attaching your
     mouse to the serial port.  See your laptop documentation for 
     information about changing system settings.


1.3  Mouse is not working or not working properly

     If your mouse is not working, or is not working properly, there
     may be another device (such as a modem or internal pointing device)
     using either the same port or interrupt used by the mouse.  Turn 
     off your computer and try connecting the mouse to a different
     serial or PS/2 port.


1.4  Mouse Icon Disappears from Taskbar

     When you install IntelliPoint 2.0, a Microsoft Mouse icon
     appears on the taskbar (in the lower right corner).  You can
     click this icon to open IntelliPoint.  However, if you turn off
     all the features on the Visibility and StepSavers tabs and the
     Odometer feature on the Productivity tab, the Mouse icon
     disappears from the taskbar.


1.5  Using IntelliPoint with EasyBall

     If you attach both a Microsoft mouse and an EasyBall mouse
     to your computer, you can select a different set of pointers
     for each mouse.  (You select the Easyball pointers in PointerLand
     and the Microsoft Mouse pointers in IntelliPoint.)  However, if
     any pointers are animated, both pointing devices will use the
     same animated pointer.  For example, if the "Busy" pointer is
     animated for the Microsoft mouse, you will get the same "Busy"
     pointer when you are using the EasyBall mouse.


1.6  If SnapTo Doesn't Work the Way You Expect

     If you enable the SnapTo feature on the IntelliPoint StepSavers 
     tab, the pointer automatically moves to the default button when
     you open a dialog box.  However, if there is no default button,
     or if the buttons in the dialog box are not standard Windows
     buttons (many normal-looking buttons are actually custom buttons
     that SnapTo can't find), then the pointer snaps to the center
     of the dialog box.  If you prefer that the pointer not move
     automatically to the center of the dialog when there is no
     default button, but remain where it is, you can disable the
     feature in those cases.  

     >>>To prevent the pointer from snapping to the center of a dialog
        box:

     1  Click the Start button, then click Run.
     2  Type REGEDIT and then press ENTER.  (In Windows NT 3.5x, type
        REGEDT32.EXE and then press ENTER.)
     3  In the Registry Editor, open HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/
        Microsoft Input Devices/Mouse.
     4  In the right window, change the setting for SnapToCenterOfWindow 
        from "ON" to "OFF".
     5  Restart your computer.

     WARNING: Using the Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious 
     problems that may require you to reinstall Windows.  Microsoft 
     cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use
     of the Registry Editor can be solved.  Use the Registry Editor at
     your own risk.

     For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing
     Keys And Values" online Help topic in the Registry Editor
     (Regedit.exe).  Note that you should make a backup copy of the
     registry files (System.dat and User.dat) before you edit the registry.
     These files are located in the Windows folder.


1.7  SmartSpeed Description is Incorrect

     In the IntelliPoint Online User's Guide and the Getting Started
     manual, the description of the SmartSpeed feature is slightly
     in error.  Turning on SmartSpeed slows the pointer over some 
     controls, such as icons and dialog box buttons, but not all
     of the controls listed. 


1.8  Disabling Point32.exe If You Use CorelDRAW

     If you use IntelliPoint with CorelDRAW version 6.00.112, you will
     get a general protection fault when you open CorelDRAW.  Until you
     receive your upgrade to CorelDRAW version 6.00.167, you can
     temporarily fix this error by disabling Point32.exe while using
     CorelDRAW.

     >>>To disable Point32.exe:

     * From Windows 95, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to display the Close Program 
       dialog.  Select Point32, and then click End Task.

     * From Windows NT 4.0, press CTRL+ALT+DEL, then click the Task 
       Manager button.  In the Task Manager, select Point32 and then
       click End Task.
    
     * From Windows NT version 3.51, use File Manager to rename the file
       Point32.exe to another name, then restart your computer.  Click OK 
       when Windows informs you that a program listed on the run line is 
       not available.  Remember to restore the original name once you
       upgrade CorelDRAW.


1.9  Disabling SnapTo If You Use CorelDRAW

     If you use the Zoom In feature in CorelDRAW, be sure to disable
     the SnapTo feature on the IntelliPoint StepSavers tab.  Zoom In
     does not work if SnapTo is enabled.


==================================
Part 2: NOTES FOR WINDOWS NT USERS
==================================

2.1  Installing Windows NT 4.0 over IntelliPoint 2.0

     If you install Windows NT 4.0 over Windows NT 3.5x and IntelliPoint
     2.0, the Windows NT 4.0 default Mouse Properties software replaces the 
     IntelliPoint software.  Although Windows NT 4.0 provides support for the 
     IntelliMouse pointing device, not all of the IntelliPoint features are
     available on the Windows NT 4.0 Mouse Properties software.  To have
     access to all of the IntelliPoint features, reinstall IntelliPoint 2.0.


2.2  Installing IntelliType over IntelliPoint 2.0

     In Windows NT 3.51 only, if you lose the IntelliMouse wheel 
     and wheel button functionality after installing the IntelliType
     version 1.1 software (available with the Microsoft Natural
     Keyboard), run Setup to reinstall IntelliPoint 2.0.


2.3  Attaching Multiple Pointing Devices in Windows NT

     If you attach both an IntelliMouse pointing device and a second
     mouse of a different type (such as a Microsoft Mouse without
     a wheel), you may encounter the following problems:

     *  If you reset the right button to be the primary button using
        the Button Selection feature on the Basics tab in IntelliPoint,
        the second mouse does not recognize the change.

     *  You cannot use the second mouse to set Orientation on the
        Productivity tab in IntelliPoint, and the second mouse does
        not recogonize any changes you make using the Orientation
        feature. 

     *  In Windows NT 3.51 only, the wheel and wheel button on the
        IntelliMouse pointing device do not function.

     NOTE:  This does not apply to an external mouse attached to a
     laptop with an internal pointing device.


2.4  Changing the Mouse Driver in Windows NT

     If you are running Windows NT, it is recommended that you do NOT
     change the mouse driver.  (For Windows NT 4.0, the mouse driver
     is set on the General tab in IntelliPoint; in Windows NT 3.5x,
     the device driver is set in the Windows NT Setup program in the
     Main program group.)  If you change the device driver, your
     computer may stop responding when you restart it.  

     >>>To recover if your computer stops responding:
     1  Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your computer.
     2  Press the Spacebar when prompted to display the Hardware 
        Profile/Last Known Good menu.  (In Windows NT 3.5x, press
        the Spacebar to invoke the Last Known Good State.)
     3  Press "L" to choose "Last Known Good configuration."  (In
        Windows NT 3.5x, use the down arrow instead.)
