Editing text while in Live mode

Just started DW CC ver 18.1 after using the older, non subscription versions and am finding I have a learning curve to overcome.

When trying to edit text in the Live mode - e.g., changing the word from paper to stock in the screen shot example -  I am unable to simple change the spelling without highlighting the word and moving to the Code mode.  Instead, I receive a block with only two formatting options.  Is there a setting that would allow me to revert to the non-CC DW versions allowed?

Thanks.

Double-click within the line of text in Live View to edit it.

Or, you can switch to Design View to do a simple highlight/change of text.

The Live View Editor is still relatively new and clunky.

When I double click in Live view, I see an orange box.
