Word 2017 moving cursor using arrow keys

On all of our systems using Word 2017, whenever we use the arrow keys to move the cursor left or right, the screen starts flickering, the cursor disappears and pops up further along, or it just moves very slow. It seems like the system is struggling when we are trying the do something really simple. It is  a bit of an annoyance when everything slows down and you don't know where the cursor is.
Any ideas on why this would be happening?

For Windows, open Word, Options, Advanced, Disable and check (enable) the setting to Disable Hardware Graphics Acceleration. This works in Windows / Office 2016.

If Word for MAC, look in the same settings but I do not know if MAC has this setting.

Yes sorry, it is Word 2016.
I tried disabling the hardware acceleration but it did not seem to help.
If it is any help these are mostly Lenovo T460s laptops with Intel HD Graphics 520 with the latest drivers.

Try also disabling Hardware Acceleration in Control Panel , Internet Options , Advanced.

I have done both and my Office displays are fine. I had your issue or close to it in One Note 2016.

Otherwise you need to approach Lenovo Support for a better video driver

Thanks for your reply.
I don't see that option in Internet Options. Are you referring to Use Software rendering instead of GPU rendering?
That doesn't seem to help either.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Yes, sorry, Enable Software Rendering.

Now if that does not help, you need to approach Lenovo Support.
