Default deleting letters the wrong way?? - 09-26-2010, 09:57 AM

Have just found that the newly installed OS10.6 deletes letters the wrong way round.

On my other Macs, when I make a mistake in the text I just hit the delete key and it deletes from the rear the front.
Now I have to move the cursor in front of the letter and press delete. It then deletes from the front to the rear??

Any ideas??

I don't use OSX, but you might find some helpful info if you search for "osx backspace delete", or osx switch backspace delete, etc.

function delete = forward delete. I hated its absence on our MacBook Pro after having gotten so used to using the forward delete key as well as the traditional delete key on our Mac desktop keyboard. J
