Delete key removes entire paragraph

Weird action today. When I use the “delete key” it deletes the entire paragraph not just the character. If I highlight a character or word and press delete, it functions as normal. This only happens in one of my chapters in the ms.

The same thing started happening to me today! I haven’t been able to find any information on this issue and signed up for the forum specifically looking for a way to fix this. Does anyone know anything about how this happened or what to do to fix it?

Try cutting the paragraph then paste it back using Paste and Match Style.


You may also want to try the Zap Gremlins function. (Should be somewhere in the edit menu, it is a real thing.)

If you copied that text off of your internet browser, it is possible that it is inside an invisible table. So perhaps you end up deleting that table, along with everything in it.
