I'm on the 2018 Home and Student Edition, and have had this installed for some time. Suddenly, when I type in the numeral 5, it shows as 5 until i click away from it, then it changes to 17. I can't find anything helpful by Googling - any ideas?
I've tried six fonts and it is the same in all of them. Only the numeral 5 does this. I've checked what happens in Word, and it's fine there.
Weird. Have never heard of anything like that, not that one key can be replaced with a two digit number.Check Text > Writing Tools > Quick Correct... (if it is present in the Home & Studen version) and make sure there is no automatic replacement for "5".Is it the same if you use "5" from ordinary keyboard and the numeric keypad?Have you tried copying from Word (for example) and pasting instead of typing?Tried another keyboard?
You genius! it was in the quick correct - goodness knows how it got there, as I didn't even realise the writing tools section existed, so you have done me a double favour. Thanks very much.
Wow!You're welcome, I'm glad I could help.
