How do you change fonts back to originals


Click mouse when your cursor is in the middle of some of the original typing... That will tell you what type (font) Libra is using there... Write that down so you'll remember it.. Then move your cursor back to where you want to type.. Chances are, the type will change back to whatever you were last typing.. Go up to the top with your mouse cursor and change the font manually to match what it was originally..... then type on. It should be correct.....

Typing problems with MacBook Air


Even if you just get close to the trackpad this can happen.
You can turn off the trackpad while typing in:
Apple menu
System Preferences
Trackpad
Choose your preferences there.

All the best to you,

Cursor skips back into sentece or paragraph


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!

Jumping cursor when typing


Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
  1. Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
  2. Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.
