I was having the same issue, I was highlighting the address and copying it, which used to work when using the image button. Crimson Nape solved it for me. 
Go to the image.  Right-click on it and select the "Copy Image Location" option.

You have a mix of Obstructive and Central/ Clear Airway events. I suggest that you turn off EPR and see what happens to the CA.

RE: Help with New Cpap user
Thank you for your suggestions.
I will turn EPR off and see how that goes for a few days.

Also I am considering ajack's suggestion of having the range between 12-13. I can slowly increase the 11.6 upwards to see how I tolerate higher pressure now since I have gotten comfortable with CPAP. Are you thinking that a tighter range will help lower the OA? Perhaps because the machine keeps the pressure higher and doesn't have to work its way up from 7 to 11.6 or 13?

RE: Help with New Cpap user
I see a 2 step process, 1st lower the CA, at first by eliminating the EPR.  I would say ok for now to go to 11-11.6 as you seem to be spending most of your time there anyway.  I would wait on raising pressure until we see what happens when EPR is turned off.
2nd step.  Once that is done look at reducing the OA.  

Frequently when we see a mix of OA and CA events the end titration is at a fixed pressure say 11-11 in auto mode without EPR.  We won't know until we get there.

Thank you for the explanation. A 2 step process makes sense.
EPR off and I will report back with chart on how it goes in a few days.
