How can I insert my cursor in the middle of a word/name/amount?

I think that until recently I could place my cursor inside an item to edit it. Now I can only select the whole item and use my arrow key to move cursor to where I want to make change.

    I went back and opened an old backup file using Quicken 2016. Clicking worked for selecting inside words. I closed 2016 and opened 2019 and clicking started to work again in 2019. 🤷‍♂️

    In most text fields, a second mouse click will de-select the field and leave you with a blinking insertion point. In some fields, it takes 3 clicks. I often resort to the arrow keys as well when I have trouble convincing Quicken where I want the insertion point. I strongly doubt anything related to this has changed recently.

    I've used an extra click or two before but now no amount of clicking has any effect.

    What version of Quicken do you have? Look in the Help menu for About Quicken.
