Backspace isn't deleting highlighted text.

In word, I used to be able to highlight whole sentences and paragraphs and be
able to hit the BACKSPACE button and it would delete all the highlighted
text. Something happened and now it will only delete one character at a time.
I have to hit the DELETE button if I want to erase whole paragraphs. How do I
change it back so that the BACKSPACE button erases whole paragraphs at a time?
