Question about Apple MacBook Air

Cursor skips back into sentece or paragraph

When typing on the MacAir suddenly the cursor will skip back in the sentence or paragraph. It seems like I am accidentally hitting some key combination with my right hand resting wrong or a combo of touching the key pad and a key?

Hello,
Usually it is just from your hand/thumb touching the touchpad and registering as a single-click causing the cursor to jump back. This is a well known issue with the MacAir due to size/design of the machine and the sensitivity of the trackpad. Many people have found it to be resolved by turning off the "touch to tap" feature, however it is annoying when you need that. Hope this helps you! Happy Hollidays!

Cursor skips lines while typing


My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.

Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
