Typing Activates Keyboard Shortcuts

Whenever I type using the text tool it activates the keyboard shortcuts instead of actually typing (selects other tools and functions).

I mostly use a subtitle present which I drag onto the graphic and type from there. But niether do the present and standalone tool work.
1. Drag preset onto graphic
2. Click Graphic to highlight text box
3. Type
4. Shortcuts are used instead.

I have double clicked the graphic in the timeline to full highlight the example text im replacing and still shortcuts are used whenever I type. This has only started happening after a month or 2 (been using the program and doing the same thing for a couple years).
I'll attach pics in case I haven't described it well but I saw others having issues from 2017 and the solution was to restarted whilst holding shift and alt (this did not work for me). 

In Pic 2 you'll see typing i has selected Source IN on the timeline. In Pic 3 this is the only workaround I have for the time being - I cant select the graphic in the timeline but in the essential graphics tab I double click the word and type and then shorts aren't used. Weird.

I currently have no other plugins or panels installed.
