I am beginner of Processing software and need help! (mouse example issue)

Hi there, I have installed a software from Processing.org and it is responding the way as described in the text book. After installing the software, click on the File button, then Examples then Drawing then double click Continuous Lines. A pop up box will appear in that box click the Run button . As soon as click the Run button, a new window will pop open running the example. But in my case, as can be seen in my attached screenshot, just a blank new window pop up only without running the example !!!

I need this fixed before my classes start later this month, pls. Thank you very much :two_hearts:

you have to hold down your left or right mouse button to paint :slight_smile:

You can see it in the code here:

if (mousePressed == true) {
  line(mouseX, mouseY, pmouseX, pmouseY);

It is not broken.

You need to use the mouse on the sketch window for input.
