Version: N/A; reported 2002-03-19
I usually type between 60 and 80 words per minute. As I use cooledit to edit my
LaTeX documents, I use it quite often. Sometimes, when I press a key in the
main text edit widget in cooledit, it prints the previously-entered character
(or, sometimes, the character before that) in place of the character which I
pressed. This occurs consistently, although not at every keypress. Also, the
problem happens most notably during inter-word spaces.
For example, the following is a sample of a quote which I typed in cooledit, and
the version on the following line(s) is what I actually typed:
``I try to learanas much as I canabecause I know nnthini cocpared totwwat I
``I try to learn as much as I can because I know nothing compared to what I
need to know.''
As you can see, this is a very annoying problem, and manually fixing it after it
occurs can become very time-consuming (especially when a (^H + char) combination
inputs two ^H's).
