I am using Blender version 2.79. There are moments when I can't move or do anything. Just small moments when I can't do anything. -The best way I can describe it, is no matter where I click or what button I press I can't move or do anything. It's like everything stays still because it want's me to do or not do something.

What would be the correct button to push? Where do I click? What am I supposed to do?

    $\begingroup$ It seems to me that you are creating a scene that exceeds the capacity of your machine. But we know nothing about your project, your computer or any other useful information to help you. Please use the edit link at the bottom of your question (i.stack.imgur.com/lXFuK.png) and add more information on how you set up your project. Add images that might help us understand your scene and settings $\endgroup$ – cegaton Mar 28 at 17:46
  • $\begingroup$ if it happens while you're in Rendered viewport shading, you should decrease the preview sampling ratio, in my case I use a ratio of 3 and it's enough $\endgroup$ – moonboots Mar 28 at 18:19
  • $\begingroup$ I'll try just simple geometry, still had that issue. $\endgroup$ – James DeBeck Mar 30 at 1:17

You could try a right click. For example, using circle select needs a right click to accept the selection and escape back to normal.

  • $\begingroup$ That solved the problem. Right clicking. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – James DeBeck Mar 30 at 1:17
