SDK 0.16.0 - basic mouse functions not working.

I was working on a project this morning and all was well. The SU7 update kicked off after a MSFS restart, so I went ahead and installed SDK0.16.0 when it was done.

Now I am having problems doing basic functions. I added an "Airport_Stairs_02" object to my airport. It is sitting on the ramp, but I cannot select it. If I click on it in the list in the scenery editor, I can see a think white box appear around it, but there is no gizmo.

One-click placing does not work now. If I select an object from the list and then click one click placing, the object will appear off in the distance when I move my mouse around the scene. If I move my mouse over the actual object window, the object I have selected appears in the middle of my scene. Move the mouse back over to that spot, and I can see the onject hovering over a location far away.

What gives? Am I the only one seeing this?

Update. I saw Eric's comment on the other thread about collapsing the aircraft editor to regain control of the joystick and keyboard, so I thought I'd give it a try for this issue. No joy. I opened up all of the tool windows and collapsed them. No joy. I had a tools window with 3 tabs, Materials editor, Objects, and Scenery Editor. I slid the Scenery Editor tab off to the side and gave it it's own window and then I collapsed it.

I got my mouse back, and one click placing started working as it should. Seems like the Object window and the Scenery Editor aren't playing nice with each other. At least I can work now.

I added a bunch of objects that I didn't need when I was testing. I was in the scenery editor deleting them which caused the sim to crash. That's the second time my sim has crashed after deleting a scenery object. At any rate. My testing stopped where I left off above.

Final update. After getting things running again, I have found that if the Object tool is setup as a tabbed item in a window with any other tool on my system, one click placing and object selection will not work properly.
