Autocorrect functions

when i type -> or -->  i used to get a regular right arrow.  i.e. not bold.  Now I get a bold right arrow.  Also, when I hit return, it deletes the entry.  Any ideas how to get it back the way it was?

I tried that but did not seem to make any changes, i.e. right arrow still appears bold.
