backspace disabled but i don't know why

Postby Y2hyaXM » Wed, 16 Jun 2004 19:02:01 GMT

I have somehow enabled a setting on Microsoft word 2002 which disables the use of backspace when you select text.  But I don know how to make it go back.  It quite hared to explain the problem and is easily described by an example:

Say you select a word which you want to delete you have various options of doing so, you can press the delete key (the most obvious), the backspace key or just type which replaces the selected word with whatever you type.  

These last two for some reason do not work in word anymore and it is extraordinarily annoying especially when you for get and there ends up being loads of words you thought you deleted left I your document.

I would love to find out how to fix this problem as it has happened on three of my computers.

3.ISAKMP NAT problem (I know it can be done but don't know how)

I'm setting up an IPSec tunnel between two Cisco routers and a
SonicWall 2040 in between. One of the routers (1721) is on a private
network (192.168.16/24) behind the firewall; the other cisco box is
somewhere on the Internet.

The tunnel is set up by the router on the public net and the firewall
is configured to allow IKE, IPSec and port 5400 both ways. The router
on the private LAN can be addressed from the outside because the
firewall provides a one2one mapping of a public address to

When the router on the Internet sets a tunnel to my 1721 (the public
NAT address!), its log shows:

Jan 13 14:10:55.094: ISAKMP:(0:1764:HW:2): processing ID payload.

The router probbaly expects the public IP address of my private
router. How can I tell either my router or the other router that is equivalent to its public IP address?
