Default How to control INPUT CURSOR location when clicking in Word after being in another app?

Hello,



I am often switching between word and other applications.

In 2016 version (at least I think), after first clicking to word cursor input was on last position. So I could just click anywhere in the word and paste text from other apps - and I was sure that my text will appear at the end.

Now in 2019 version, it will move my input cursor to the position where I make the first click. So now I need to pay attention where I click, which disturbs me from what I am doing.

I hope I described it clearly.
Is here a setting for this behavior? Or is here some external help maybe? I tried to search, but probably cant describe correctly, so no results.

Thank you.

Dunno why, but after some restarts it started to work as previously.

Close please.
