Complications on Mac OSX 10.10.2

Started using Intellij 14 yesterday after my final straw with Eclipse. I am currently a college student so my search for another compiler is urgent. I like Intellij's potential, however I face so many issues with it that I'm about ready to pull the plug.

1. Switching classes, opening up a previous class, or opening a newly created class causes my first click of the mouse/track pad highlight a character with a solid blinking caret box. Pressing space, delete, arrow keys, does nothing but highlight text. If I type, it will spaz out and suddenly highlight half my code and replace it with random letters. Right before writing this, it took half my code and wrote exactly 9 e's over it. I have no idea where it came from. Normally to get out of this highlighting, I tap my 'a' key two times. Sometimes this does not work. I have seen information about some 'iBus' program. But I have no idea where this is to change the code to remove Intellij from it's preferences. I honestly don't believe I have it.

2. Intellij 14 refuses to connect to a private repository.

3. The tabs at the top of my tools bar because locked. I cannot change tabs. Clicking does nothing. I have to restart and reopen my project. I'm lucky if I make it another 5-15 minutes so this doesn't happen.

4. Clicking and beginning to write code (When I bypass the #1 issue) will randomly begin performing a comment I presume? It's written in a text box above the event's/console/whatever I may have at the bottom, window.

It's been over 29 hours of searching online sources, finding help, testing new preferences and settings trying to fix this. I cannot find a solution. I hope someone may be able to help. I've wasted so much time already with this compiler.

Thank you.

Please attach idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23352446) that would include IDE startup.

Do you have any third-party applications listed at System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Accessibility?

Can you reproduce the problem in other IDEA screen modes: presentation mode, full screen mode?

Please check if the issue can be reproduced with the Community Edition from http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/index.html .

Do you have any third-party apps installed that can affect your mouse/keyboard behavior?

Thank you for your reply. Here is the most recent log. Should have plenty on it as I've been trying to learn Java as quickly as I can. Should have plenty of information. I had 5 logs.

I have two accesibility programs allowed: TeamSpeak, and Wolfram(Calculus program).

No I do not have any keyboard or mouse applications/programs. I have a standard wireless Microsoft Mouse, and my laptop trackpad/keyboard.
No, using the trackpad or mouse does not produce different results.

I'm running on a mid-2012 Macbook Pro Retina.

Here is a screenshot of a prentation mode, along with the blinking highlighted box I talked about in #1. It's highlighting the 'd' in void in that picture. I will try the community version next.

Also, ignore the crazy code. Intellij made a mess of things while I was attempting every preference.

Also should have noted that the theme is Oblivion, and this did not cause the actions. I've had this problem since the first start up.

Thank you! This did fix my problem with the highlighting caret. Hopefully the remainder I can solve on my own. That was my biggest issue.
