    opp - please disregard, my last comment. I posted my initial reply onto the wrong issue and can't delete it.

    I've seen some posts about this being caused by invalid use of delaycall:

    Having said that, I'm not explicitly using delayed call in any of my code or in any third party code but am still observing the issue in 2022.3.37

    Still happening in the latest 2022.27......

    Left clicking sometimes works, middle mouse click to pan never works

    I am currently using 2022.3.19f1 and middle button still causing issue. Out of 10 clicks, hardly 2 or 3 times will work, rest of the time it doesn't work.

    It just happened to me in 2022.3.16f1. But restarting Unity has solved it.

    The mouse doesn't respond in the scene view. This occurs when trying to pan, zoom, orbit, or select objects. Tried restarting Unity and using a different mouse, but the problem persists. Any known workarounds?
