Highlight then delete does not work

Answered

Something happened with my curser. It is now a black blinking box, instead of a vertical line.

I have already tried going into preferences and toggling the text overwrite key. That changed the curser back to a vertical line, but it still does not behave normally. When I highlight text and press delete it doesn't delete the text, it only moves back the highlighted portion of text one character.

Please help

Thank you Anna. 

I didn't think Vim would come bother me here. But here we are. Wasted weeks of effort just like all those years ago on Linux.
