Sorry not to get back to you earlier - I've had late nights at work this week.

I wondered if that was the case. I used Abiword alot in the past and
then when 2.9 came on ubuntu it seemed to have problems. Most seems to
have been sorted but editing with the cursor is a bit annoying that's
all. I have just been typing stuff up in Mousepad and then opening in
Abiword to format for printing. Libreoffice is too elaborate for my
needs and still seems to have a load of bugs.
