Thread: Cursor position within message writing

  1. Cursor position within message writing

    Something 'new' has started.

    Problem :

    Cursor 'jumps' to another place as I type

    Description :

    I'm sure if has to do with CUT AND PASTE. In one instance, I cut out a
    sentence I had typed and moved it up in the message. I then went to
    where it was, place the cursor, but my typing started at the end of the
    pasted sentence?

    In another instance I cut out something from a web page and pasted it
    into the message. I could NOT position the cursor where I wanted it? Hit
    the ENTER key a few time and finally the cursor went under the pasted
    part. However, typing was elsewhere.

    Recreate :

    I can't? It just happens and it seems to be new or recent.

    Close, but not exactly. I'm seeing it work fine and then jump to the end
    of a paste or cut move location.

    This seems to deal more with the cursor delay/stop movement and blanks
    not showing when at the end of a line or would cause a wrap. I see the
    wrap problem and it doesn't bother me. The delay or apparently stop
    displaying what I type and then quickly put out the missing typing seems
    to be spell check related. With it off, I don't see this.
