When writing on MS Word (Win XP, Office 2003), if I press the backspace button, letters I've written will be deleted - as they should. If I select an entire word or phrase in the middle of the text and press backspace, however, nothing will happen. Alternatively, if I select a block of text and start typing, it would usually replace the selected block, right? Wrong! Not anymore. It will only insert what I'm writing wherever the cursor is placed. I tried to press the insert button, but nothing changed.
To make things more odd, I can write normally here on IE, but the backspace won't work as it should when I'm working with Adobe Photoshop, for instance.
Am I being a jerk or there is something you experts can help me with?
Thanks in advance for your terrific help - I'm sure.
