down arrow key?

Hi,

When I press the down arrow key instead of moving down just one line, it moves down a huge chunk of text, a whole page and a half of sometimes it goes back to the last time I did a cut and paste. It’s really distracting because I end up in randmo places in the doc and have no idea where I am. Any clues?

The down arrow key moves the insertion point. So if you have left the insertion point somewhere in the text and then scrolled elsewhere, when you hit an arrow key it will take you back to where the insertion point is.
Best,
Keith

Hi Keith,

is there some way I can disable this???

??? What disable the basic functionality of the text engine, which works exactly as it does as in Word or any other text program? No… I’m afraid not…
