Hey Aerich, what's your party composition? Are you running any mods?

I also run a Mac with Parallels. When you are in native Mac applications the ctrl-click works as a right mouse click. However, when you are in the emulated Windows XP, the ctrl-click does not work. My solution is to plug in a USB mouse--most of them will work in both Mac and Windows so I can use it for everything. I actually get a 5 button mouse, and program the thumb buttons for functions like 'highlight objects' that I use often.

I also set up Bootcamp so I can natively boot into XP. I use that mode for more resource intensive games like the Dragon Ages and Mass Effects.

A USB mouse it is. Thanks to all who helped.
