I have been working on a document for elementary math. I have developed ways to insert math problems, equations and pictures. I may have inadvertently changed something in the program to cause this problem. I know just enough about computers to royally screw things up.
If I highlight a sentence with the intention of deleting it and begin typing. Instead of deleting the highlighted sentence, my new sentence appears and just pushes the original to the right but doesn't remove it. Then, if I hit the keyboard delete, nothing happens at all.
I tried to be all smart and go into the Edit Menu and Tool Bars and check stuff. I don't even know what I might have checked or unchecked. I also did the fix and repair thing but it didn't fix this problem.
I called the tech support where I bought the computer and they told me to call Microsoft. So, I called Microsoft who told me to call the tech support where I bought the computer.
Now, I'm appealing to Bleeping Computer who has always solved my problems in the past.
