KBtip2.png Tip: This release changes the default mouse behavior. Clicking on most surfaces will make your avatar walk there, and dragging the mouse around your avatar works differently from older releases. If you prefer the old mouse behavior, pick Me>Preferences from the top menu, click on the Move & View tab, then change the Single click on land: setting to No action.
