Highlighting and Moving Text

I’m new to this program and liking it, but having problems with highlighting text and moving it. The cursor is very inconsistent in highlighting - often doesn’t work at all - and often when I have captured the text when I try and pick it up it drops the highlight.

OS is Windows 7


Ty, welcome to Scrivener and to the forum! I generally find that highlighting text and moving it works pretty well, but there are different circumstances in Scrivener in which one might do that. Where is the text to start with, and where are you moving it to? All within the same document? Are there any bulleted/numbered lists involved?

Hi David and thanks for reply.
I had unknowingly downloaded stuff from Adobe that I found was causing a similar issue in Word.
I removed the offending software and problem resolved.

Great! Glad it’s fixed
