Cursor position in VBE

Last week, out of nowhere, my cursor (in VBE only) started to be mismatched in it's apparent place and where it would actually place typed text. For example, if I visually place the cursor at then end of a line and start typing, text will show up 2-4 spaces to the left. Additionally, two other issues: 1) when I usee the End key to go to the end of the line, the cursor will type info after the last existing character but will appear to be 5+ spaces to the right and 2) the cursor does not appear on either side of a character, but instead shows in the middle of some characters or towards the left side in others (but still slightly overlapping).

I'm hoping it's a setting I screwed up somewhere, otherwise I have no idea what I did to invite the wrath of the VBE gods.

Thanks y'all.

I think I figured out what was going on. I had increased the magnification of my monitors (Win 10) instead of changing the resolution. As a consequence, the computer experienced something akin to parallax error. Who knew.
