When editing particle and emitter parameters - realtime visual updates only occur with PC version not MAC

I have worked with Particle Illusion on a PC for a few years now.

I am looking into the MAC demo for home use, but have noticed the particles and emitters do not update in realtime on the MAC version when editing a parameter.

Example description:
- Place an emitter from the library on stage.
- Start playback with timeline looping on.
- Everything at this point is playing smooth and looping.
- I click and hold on one of the parameters function curves points to edit something (like scale, emission angle... etc) the emitter stops running and all particles freeze. - (if I do not continually move the mouse around.)
- When the mouse click is released the particle system starts running again.


- The same example on a PC results in continuos emission and playback, even if I am not moving the mouse around.

Is this just an issue with the mac version?

Any help or info would be great.

Yes, that's the way the Mac version works currently. Has something to do with the mouse event handling.
