How do I get the cursor between letters?

So I've been told that I can move the cursor from just the end of a line to anywhere I want when I'm typing some text, but I can't for the life of me figure out how.

How do I use alphabet keys on remote

Generally, entering text is carried out the same way as with most cell phones.
  • 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: Enter a character to the position pointed by the cursor.
    • First press: enter the first character from a set of characters related to this button. Each subsequent press: you may change the entered character to the next one from this set.
    • 0: enter the space.
    • 1: enter a special character (punctuation marks, etc).
      • Up, Down, Left, Right after pressing 1 (special character entering mode): select the required character.
  • ENTER: confirm selection; finish text entering.
  • SUBTITLE: enter the period (for numeric mode); functions like button 1 (character mode).
  • CLEAR (<-): delete a character to the left of cursor.
  • SELECT (cap'num): switch input mode:
    • abc: character mode, small latin letters.
    • ABC: character mode, capital latin letters.
    • 123: numeric mode, digits.
  • RETURN: cancel the text changes and finish text entering.
  • Left/Right: move the cursor one character left/right.
  • Up/Down: move the cursor to the start/end of a text line.
    • If the cursor is already in start/end position: select another user interface element which is under/over the current text entry area (only for dialogs with several elements of user interface; text changes are confirmed automatically).
  • POP UP MENU: show context menu with a list of available commands. They allow you to cut, copy and paste text using the clipboard, much like it is done on a PC.

Laptop keyboard does not type inline. It types the correct letters anywhere on an email and web page (where typing is required), any place it wants, not after the last letter typed to make a sentence.

I've had this happen to me when I drag a thumb across the touchpad. Watch where the cursor is while typing and see if it moved because of inadvertent swipes on the pad. For me, the typing cursor looks like a pipe character ' If that's not what you mean, please clarify.
If it's the touchpad swipes causing the problem, you can adjust the sensitivity in the control panel. In addition, you can attend Ms Bilby's typing class and keep you wrists high or get a scolding ;)

Changing the Cursor Appearance

I had this same problem on my TI 89... You must have accidentally set your calculator to insert mode. To switch it back to the thin cursor, input the following keystrokes... Go to the "2nd" key to enter second function mode. Then press the button with an arrow on it pointing to the left(The key that you use to backspace). Do you see the "INS" lettering above the backspace key? There's your solution :-)

Letter writting problems

Do you use a laptop or some sort of keyboard with a mouse pad? My son used to have that problem when he would type as his thumb would accidentally hit the mouse pad and move the cursor. We solved it in a very low tech way by taping a notecard over the mouse pad when he was using the computer. Depending on the manufacurer, there are ways to turn off the mouse pad while continuing to use a mouse.
