    When I highlight a section of text, to prepare to delete it, when I hit the delete key the highlighting disappears, and the cursor returns to the beginning (left side of left-most word) of the highlighted section. Is these some command I hit to change the behaviour of this process??

    Any help is appreciated...

    Edit: Found something interesting.. if I push the function key with the delete key, the highlighted text disappears like it should.....
