On TWO Macs, sometimes right next to a correctly performing PC, the cursor will jump backwards erasing the prior text. Or the prior text will get blue highlighted w/o reason....and the next keystroke will wipe out the highlighted text. While it used to at random times, it seems constant now. Any thoughts or knowledge on this dilemma? thx

If you accidentally erase text, command-z will normally bring it back.

shameless plug for my blog
