word delete/backspace

By evileyejoe ·
i have a problem with one word document that ive never seen before. If you put your curser somewhere and hit the delete button say 4 times... and then you want to backspace you have to push the backspace button 5 times before it goes once... Odd.

If you select somewhere and backspace you can't use the delete key in that location at all.. I can click somewhere else and delete there and come back to that location and it still will not work. I'll post if I find anything else but anyone have any ideas?

this happens on sp1 and sp3 on windows xp and windows 2k.

I'm just speculating.
could it be that your keyboard is set up as a non english language keyboard?

Maybe you should check the formatting for that document to make sure it doesn't have something weird. Use the Show\Hide button on the Standard Tool Bar.

Also maybe you should check to make sure you don't have the accessibility setttings active for the keyboard.
