Windows 7: Word 2010 Double cursor

Word 2010 Double cursor

I was editing a word document and upon completion/recheck, I noticed that somehow I had put the same paragraph in twice. An easy fix I thought, I highlighted the redundant paragraph and hit delete. Now both were removed.? Copied the paragraph again, inserted it, it now is in there twice again. Put the cursor at the beginning of the paragraph and noticed that the cursor was also at the beginning of the repeated paragraph. (which happened to be on the next page) Started to do a delete, it was deleting both paragraphs. I need help on this one. Tx

Hi meebers,

Can you take a screen capture? To see what you see would help.

Thanks,

I would like to post a screen shot, however the document is company sensitive . I just don't know how it is even possible to have the cursor showing in two different places/pages. It was a copy paste situation that the only way I was able to get "around" it was to just type in the text myself. No repeating cursors when I did that. I have however several more documents to update, hope it never returns.
