The arrow keys on my keyboard function as I would expect when I am in Texts: cursor up/down one line; left/right one space. However when I am among the Tools either the up or down arrow takes me to the beginning of the particular module. Why not the same function regardless of module?

The Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys function as to be expected in any module.

Dennis,

I don't see this issue. Is your cursor blinking inside the text and when you hit the arrow keys it doesn't move up/down/right/left one line/space? It does this for me in a text module or tool module.
What specific tool do you have open?

Thanks, Joe, for the power of your attention. I opened Accordance just now to see myself replicate what I was experiencing last night. But the problem is not there now. While last night I was working in Vatican II-E (Catholic Collection) module, I was frustrated in moving about. The arrow keys kept taking me back to the very beginning of the module. And last night I tried various other tool modules (e.g. Anchor); that same problem happened. I just sampled various modules. All is well.

That sort of strange behavior is common if another key is pressed simultaneously—or one has two "mice" [mouses?] or other input devices and one has something pressing one of the buttons on it. Happens to me all the time when preparing podcasts. Of course, my desk is probably much messier than yours. ;-)

Ah, yes, I've experienced this a time or two. I use the Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse. I like the gestures (especially in Lion) of the Trackpad, but it pains my knuckles after a while. Needless to say, it's a prime culprit for the corner of a book to rest on and drive one's cursor/mouse behavior bonkers.
