Visual Studio 2017 for Mac - caret/cursor offset from mouse click location.

JamesLaveryJamesLavery GBBeta, University ✭✭✭✭✭

My VS for Mac 2017 installation has suddenly gone bonkers. On Friday all was fine. This morning, when I click anywhere on a document or the Project Pad, the caret or selection is about 5 lines lower than the mouse pointer location.

The mouse works fine in all other applications, and when clicking on menu items.

I have not upgraded VS for Mac recently. Currently running version 7.8.2 (build 1).

Any thoughts?
