Tracker turning off randomly glitch

It would be really great if one of the developers could spend a bit of time trying to get to the bottom

of the glitch that has been around for as long as I can remember where the on screen tracker randomly turns off and prevents coordinate input when drawing elements or trying to move them. I’ve tried for many years to pinpoint what causes it but can’t.

i am having the same issue and for some reason once i place a temporary node to measure from, say placing a beam, the tab input parameter doesn't show?

I can't say I have ever noticed the tracker turn itself off - not to say it isn't happening to you.

 

Do you maybe have a keyboard shortcut set up for the tracker and you are inadvertently using it?

Or if you have it as an icon in a toolbar, maybe you accidentally click on it?

 

These are my tracker settings in the Work Environment.

I only have 22 open at the moment, but it should be the same in newer versions.
