Sometimes when I'm tying I decide to delete some text I've just typed up, and the fastest way for me to do that is by using Option + Delete. Sometimes when I do this (and I have yet to identify the conditions in which it happens), Pages will delete not just the word to the left of the cursor but also the numerous pilcrows that I have to the right of the cursor along with part of the following word. Sometimes, it even appears to move the cursor into the middle of the first word of the next paragraph and start deleting from there. Now, I am on a macbook air, and so I thought it might have been my thumb erronously touching the touchpad and moving the cursor, but tap-to-click is off and I'm not applying enough pressure to the pad to cause it to click.

Is there some kind of weird condition or setting that applies to option + delete that I'm not aware of? (Although Pages' preferences is two very small menus)

 

 

 

 

BONUS POINTS:
I'm noticing that my cursor is actually randomly jumping around here while I'm typing in this textbox. Quite frequently, in fact. This may have something to do with the problem above; however, it is oddly suspicious that cursor would always just so happen to end up half way into the first word of the next paragraph that is separated from the current paragraph with numerous but a varying quantity of pilcrows.
