Weird V6 issue---"locking" sliders on plugins

Okay, here's a new one on me.

This seems to have developed recently, though I haven't done any FX type stuff for a while (couple weeks).

So, this may be hard to describe, but try to bear with me.

On several of my plugins, I'm getting issues with the sliders for adjusting various parameters of the effect "locking." When I drag one past the other, they lock (sync and begin moving together), and will only unlock when I drag the slider the other way.

For instance, in the secondary color corrector, on the bottom half of the dialogue box for adjusting the FX, the "limit saturation" option has several things you can adjust, "high," "low," and smooth. If adjust the low, and say, bring it from 0 to 75, and then adjust the high, and start to drag it in the same direction, when I reach 75, the low starts moving as well, and will continue to do so 'til I drag low back in the other direction. If I drag HIGH back in the other direction, however, it pulls low with it.

It's not just that plugin, but that's an example. This is really annoying, as I can't easily adjust parameters apart from each other now. No idea what I did to create this problem. I tried opening an empty project, and it does it on an imported clip in said project.

I also recently reinstalled V6 because when I uninstalled my V8 demo (long expired), it took a whole bunch of plugins with it, so I had to reinstall V6 to get them back.

wierd. I still use V6 and not too infrequently will have the same sliders you're talking about behave oddly, usually when trying to adjust them at a later date rather than the initial application. Also have had some problems with the feathering just not responding when masking something. I'm a computer idiot so I usually end up rebooting and the problem goes away. So I can empathize with you but have no solution.

hmm. . .I can't recall if the several times I tried it was all in the same "boot" or if I rebooted.

What do you mean adjust them at a later date?

You know, if you used the secondary color corrector and a few days later reviewing and notice someting peripheral that wasn't supposed to be changed was changed. Most recently for me it was changing a trolls skin to green without getting his clothes or bridge he was on green.
