    When I hit the delete key to delete text to the left of the cursor, it
    deletes any text after the cursor. This is becoming increasingly frustrating
    because I am accidentally deleting text that I don't want to delete

    The delete key always deletes to the right. Use Backspace to delete to the
    left.
