    Hi.

    I just began playing PtD and I feel I will love it. Am having some trouble, though...

    I don't seem to be able to click on some objects in the game, such as chests and cupboards. Say there's two cupboards in a room, both are tagged when I press the alt key, but while I can interact with one, I can't get the other highlighted. I tried rotating, zooming in and out, but to no avail.

    Second, I can't figure out how to browse the journal. When I receive new info about a quest and open the journal, the info is there. But as soon as I click on any journal link and close that text, I can't get back to it (or any other entry) again. I remember the game saying I can't keep a journal without a literate character in my party, but I created one that has Literacy 10. Is that Literacy skill too low, is it some sort of a bug, or am I just too thick?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't click on all cupboards, even if highlighted. I don't know if this is a bug or not.

    The journal thing is a bug I had too. If you use the links the journal goes blank. You have to browse it one page at a time if you want to use it, and you have to reload an old save to get it back if it goes blank.

    Thank you. I wasn't even aware that you could browse the journal page by page.
