Hi Paul. I had this same issue with LC7.
Found it in the forums:

Wherever I click in the script editor, the actual insertion point is 1 char to the left. In the word “point,” if I click between the o and the i the editor thinks that I clicked between the p and the o. This adds an extra, counterintuitive hassle to scripting. Yet RunRev Support says that it cannot duplicate the error on a Mac Book Pro. Has anyone else encountered this error, or am I the only one? Heather told me to save my stack as “Legacy 5.5,” but this doesn’t help. Thanks. Paul Gabel
