Pre-patch, my keyboard and mouse clicks worked just fine. But now that this recent patch went in, I'm having issues. No, I have never changed any of the bindings on any of them. No, they are not wireless.
To be clear, at the login screen and character selection screen, everything works beautifully. Once I'm in the game with a character, however, the game will not recognize my keyboard commands at all. Mouse clicks do not work *unless* it's the first character logged in for that session and the welcome screen (that shows the calender and other stuff) is still up. At that point, my mouse can still click and interact with everything. And I can use the little menu bar at the top of the screen to open up my character sheet, inventory and trade skill screen. Keyboard still doesn't work there. "c" doesn't open the character menu, etc... No keys at all work.
As soon as any of those menus are closed, however, the mouse clicks no longer work (no left or right clicks to attack, for example). The mouse itself still works as I can make the camera move. But no key clicks work. I can not open up the menu to log out either at that point, I have to ctrl+alt+del and open the task manager to close the game down from there.
So please do not give me the regular IT spiel Yes, everything is plugged in (or I couldn't be typing this, hehe). Again, it recognizes my mouse clicks and keyboard absolutely fine at the log in screen and at character selection screen. It's in-game with a character that the keyboard no longer works. And the mouse clicks do not work if menus aren't up.

Keyboard/Mouseclicks not working after patch

Having the same issue. When in character selection, I choose options and can not restore default keybind, nor manual add keybind options. This error is as if the keybind fails to load or has been delete from the game folder.

Having similar issues "left click" is not selecting objects in 3d Edit mode in Foundry, but works in 2d mode.
Looks like an issue with x,y,z spatial awareness of cursor to me.
All The Best

Same thing. I happened to be right next to a mailbox, so I 'interacted/used' it and was able to press the inventory bag in the lower right and set an altar then click the invocation button in the top right. This is was the same across all my characters on that account.
I looked at my keybinds and it was set up for some joystick thing. And there was a targeting option that I didn't recognize saying something about Target on second click or target on button release. I reset my keybinds to how I want them but the At Wills didn't work right. I would left mouse click for Duelists Flurry and it would do nothing. I rage clicked a couple times and it would start the Flurry and NOT STOP! I had to dodge roll to stop attacking.
So I went back and tried to restore the default keybinds and it went back to Joystick buttons and numpad enter for dialog. So I changed it again to how I wanted the keybinds and same thing.
I tried the keyboard language change that was tied to the NPC dialog issue and it didn't work. My keyboard (though not an apple keyboard) is set up as English - US Apple keyboard so I changed it to English - US but it didn't do anything.
Game is now unplayable...
*edit for clarification*

Tried uninstall/install, and no fix for this issue.

I too am having a similar problem to that described in the original post. I have found a work-around for the problem.
01. Backup the two preference files 'GamePrefs.pref'. Both are located in folders named 'localdata' but are down different paths.
02. Delete the two original preference files 'GamePrefs.pref'. (You did make backups right?)
03. Log into the game.
04. Select a character.
05. Enter the world.
06. While the 'Home Page' is open, move your cursor to the 'Game Menu' (gear icon) and select it.
07. Select 'Options'.
08. On the 'Game Play' tab select 'Keybinds'.
09. Review then type over each and every key bind listed, changing any to match your keyboard and play style.
10. Select 'Apply' to save your changes.
11. Test your changes.
Note: Yes, you really must type over each and every keybind listed otherwise the key does not appear to work once you leave the Options menu.
The '=' keybind does not work for the Companion page. Not a show stopper but the function does not appear in the keybind menu so there does not appear to be a way to bind the '=' key or refresh the bind so to speak. Selecting the 'Companion' tab from the Character window still works fine.
As another poster commented 'Left Push' and 'Left Click' produce different results. When I select 'Left Click' for my 'At Will Power' (Magic Missiles) the power functions continuously as long as an enemy is in range and targeted. 'Left Press', on the other hand, fires one cycle of Magic Missiles with each press of the left mouse button.
If I may be of any further help, please let me know.

This is exactly the issue I/we had on the preview shard while testing Gauntlegrym.
Most of us had to manually go in and reset our keybindings, which was a HUGE pain in the ***. Even after fixing the keybinds that were simply missing (or set to a joystick command, wtf?) I found that I had to go set the keybinds that WERE correct, just to make them trigger. For example, the keybind for the map (m) was correct, but I had to go set the keybind to m again to make it trigger.
The only way I was able to even go in and edit the keybinds is when you initially log in to your character and are presented with the "Welcome to Neverwinter" splash screen, you have mouse control. That was my only opportunity to go in and click the gear up at the top right of your menu bar and choose options > keybinds. From there you really do have to go and set every single key bind manually. It took a few tries, but you can fix it.
Also remember there is a big difference between "left click" and "left press"..........You probably want "Left (and right) press"

I also did the uninstall/reinstall with no success. I've tried multiple keyboards and none function inside the game. My laptop works just fine...too bad it's so old that it's unplayable anyway. I also disabled my keyboard in device manager and re-enabled it. Still broken.
I also got into my keybinds and saw the joystick type binds. I fixed the binds and I can use the keyboard to use an encounter ability that doesn't require a target...but that's it.
