So I'm in the process of writing a paragraph and all of the sudden the cursor will jump randomly to a part I've already written and begin writing in the middle of a sentence already completed.

Are you using a laptop? Does this happen in other programs?

If you are using a laptop then you might find this thread at Apache OpenOffice Forum useful: [Solved] Difficulty with OpenOffice Writer on Windows 10. Read it even if you are not using Windows 10 - the information might still be relevant to your problem if you are using a laptop.

Remember to report back here if this does or does not fix the problem.

I disabled my touch and tried again. Within a few minutes of writing the cursor jumped again.
