NTLK RE: Deleting large blocks of text

I had and still have this issue on occasion. You have to go back and forth like /\/\/, the key is the amount of times that
you zizzag. I think the newt recognizes a delete when you go back and forth more than 4 times, the lines should be straight
with a sharp reverse in direction like this /\/\/ (don't lift though). I find that if I scribble it out like I
would on paper the newt doesn't recognize the delete and it tries to turn it in to text, if I use the Newt scribble it
deletes it.
