Problem with writing long vowels: why does they appear as double letters?

When I try to write accents or vowel length signs on a vowel, which I recorded as macros, sometimes the letter appears as if I have written it two times. Example: I type a + sign of length (upper _) . The result is sometimes a with another a with upper _ which partly eclipses the first one How to correct this?

Problem with writing long vowels: why does do they appear as double letters?

When I try to write accents or vowel length signs on a vowel, which I recorded as macros, sometimes the letter appears as if I have written it two times. I am using Windows 7, English (US International kb, Times new roman default) on my Fujitsu laptop. I find it easier to use macros for accents or vowel length symbols. I find it easier, because i only have to add the symbol to a letter (i.e. the possibilities are less) and I use it a lot (i.e. it is faster). I use it for transliteration of cuneform texts. Example: I type write a + ctrl h (the macro, which i recorded for the sign of length (upper _) . The result is sometimes macron) and expect a with macron. But I get a and another a with upper _ macron which partly eclipses the first one How one. Sometimes it takes a long time to correct this? start working correctly
