    The simple, expected function of typed text replacing selected text does not work. For instance, if I need to replace the word "instance" with "occurrence," before, I would 1) use the text tool to select "instance" and then 2) type "occurrence" (like I would with every other program and user interface including web browser behavior known to man).

    NOW, when I 1) select "instance" and then 2) type "occurrence" - what shows up is "ccurrence."The first letter does not work.

    In order to successfully replace "instance" with "occurrence," I have to 1) select "instance" then 2) type any character and then 3) type "occurrence" because the first character does not appear.

    SOMETIMES, it does work as expected, but I haven't been able to figure out the pattern. I am having to retrain myself to 1) select the text, 2) hit delete, then 3) type the replacement word.

    Just for the record, I don't think requiring an additional keystroke to replace text is a wise decision. It has caused SO many problems for us with mistakes not being caught, always with the first letter of a word missing. Please fix this behavior so it's consistent with best practices for user experience.
