LO insertion point artefact

Hi,

LO 6.0.6.2 on Mac OS X.13.6


In Writer, wherever the cursor is clicked , cases carriage returns, and spaces to be inserted down to that point.

This happens even on a completely new totally blank document, click the cursor in the middle of the page, and carriage returns and space characters will be inserted. Mouse trailing artefact occurs as well.

It’s unworkable, and has been for some months.

Thoughts?


Regards

Chris

Is the 'Direct cursor' feature enabled?

Re: LO insertion point artefact

Preferences > Libreoffice writer > direct cursor

Direct cursor was enabled

Disabling has fixed the issue. Thank you Robert.
