Hello, i'm making a map with hammer and when i go to browse world models when the window opens up it loads fully, but i cant click on anything at all. Its kinda like its frozen or something, does anyone know how to fix this?

I have the same problem too when I open the model browser, close it, and open it again. I don't know what causes it, but when it happens I just close the object properties window and reopen it by clicking on the model, and it works like normal again.

It's just a hammer bug that happens. For the window not to freeze I would just advise you to close the properties window for a prop once you have chosen a model, every single time. I know it sounds annoying, but that's what I do.

I think it's caused by the properties window being in focus rather than the main Hammer window.
Before selecting a model, move your mouse out of the properties window and the focus should switch to the main window (You can see the properties window become grey), and then open the model browser.
