I'm currently working on a word document, however right now though I have this weird error where my cursor floats to the right about 2 spaces after I hit Enter instead of going to a new line.
If I type something it shows up on the next line and the cursor moves to it, so it's not completely stopping me from working, however it is quite annoying.

It does not do this for any other document, so it seems to be some sort of setting I've changed for this document.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

After Typing

Edit: Here's some more information, in the same document there are places where the newline functions as expected by moving the cursor to the next line. There are still many places though where this weird behavior occurs though.

    Are you using Windows Insider Preview? A change was just introduced which affected Notepad, which changed Newline behavior, which might be related. – Christopher Hostage Dec 13 '18 at 0:14
