Text field behaving strangely. Editing text problem.

I have an intermittent problem with text field editing. Some fields, some of the time, offset the position of editing compared to where the blinking insertion point is located.

From the image above you see that the insertion point is near the end of the word "from" but the "XXX" that was typed is in the middle of the word "incurred". Also, the red dotted line indicating a spelling error is offset on the word "warpage". In case it makes a difference, this particular example is a related field.

 

What is causing this, and how can I keep it from happening?

 

Thanks!!

Currently FMA client 14.0.6 on Mac OS 10.12.6 (but happens to non advanced users on other mac OS versions)

FMS  14.0.4.412 on Mac OS 10.9.5

 

No Plugins running. Only conditional formatting is color change for field if empty.

 

The text may, or may not, have been pasted into the field both situations happen frequently. the error happens typically when a user attempts to edit the text after the initial entry.
