I'm using Xcode on a system that belonged to a former employe and I can't type. There's a weird rectangle text cursor blinking and a blank line at the bottom that responds to my key strokes in a weird manner. If I press a key the text cursor will just get smaller. q will write the word RECORDING in the blank line. There's also the location path of the file I'm currently on, I'd also like that to be removed. I've wrote red numbers next to the problems I'm having.
