How get Alt+Click to work in Mathematica in OS X?
Posted:

I've discovered that Alt & Click (i.e., Option & Click) does not seem to be working for Mathematica 9.0.0 under Mac OS X 10.8.2.
Consider the Docuementation Center example:
Manipulate[ Graphics[{Line[u]}, PlotRange > 2], {{u, {{1, 1}, {1, 1}}}, Locator, LocatorAutoCreate > True}]
After I evaluate that, if I put the cursor anywhere within the image and do Alt & Click, the nearest Locator just moves a bit in the direction of the cursor location  but a new Locator is NOT created.
What's wrong and how might I fix this?
(I discovered this problem when trying to use Alexei Boulbitch's function copyCurve that he posted on MathGroup : Alt&Click does nothing, whereas it's supposed to create a Locator.)
