    I see & understand your difficulty especially when you want to paste a word between two others in a sentence.

    As I see it, it's a question of living with this or - as I do - use Command C and Command V - to Copy & Paste. As Keyboard shortcuts, they are pretty easy to remember and to execute. (and do't involve any clicks at all)

    @johnchristy44, I think you are moving the mouse, ever so slightly, as you click. I just tried it on your post and was able to click on a single character (space) just fine.

    On the other hand, to do a cut/paste, all you need to do is get the mouse cursor in the right place. No need for a right click unless you are replacing what's there. If all you want is paste, just move the cursor to where it goes, left click to get the insertion bar there and cmd-v.

    That's what I noticed also when I watched his video. I described as a bit of lag in my reply above but your description is probably right on.

    If you just click in the location you want to insert (not right click), you can then just paste the data. Also, the arrow keys (forward/backward) will move the cursor to the start/end when there is something highlighted.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Getting used to the keyboard shortcuts is definitely the way to go, although you "can" access the copy/paste commands from the menubar also. One other tip I want to throw out there for you, even though this won't help in this particular situation, is that instead of right-clicking your mouse button, you can get those same context menus by holding down the CTRL key and clicking the left mouse button. I actually sometimes find this easier than right-clicking because I have a tendency to nudge the mouse out of position when right-clicking. That tendency is even more pronounced on trackpads. Using CTRL-LEFT CLICK helps me avoid that.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
