ive just come back to the game after about 6months off.
i now notice my win 10 pc edition game's controls have changed and this may be the issue but i still cant fix it even when i remap all my controls.
I used to be able to crouch and place blocks, now all of a sudden the crouch click no longer works, its now sprint click.
my main issue however is connecting hoppers, i used to be able to crouch click and the hoppers would connect, now they dont. Crouch click wont place anything and sprint click just loads the hopper inventory. Ive made sure i definitely have a hopper selected in my inventory.
if i want to place a hopper i can do without crouch or sprint but then the hopper only points downward, i need it to point to the side. i can also place a hopper using sprint click if the hopper is connecting to a normal block like say sand, but i still cant get it connecting to a hopper.
