Schedule Activity Details View flickers while editing

I'm using ACT! Version 20.0.159.0, Update 5, and it is very difficult to edit text in the Details View of a Scheduled Activity when the text keeps highlighting, flickering and returning to normal whenever certain keystrokes are made.  I see others are experiencing this as well.  Please consider correcting this at your earliest convenience.  Thank you.

The cause is easily explained. The details are stored in Rich Text Format (RTF) which uses embedded test based formatting information. Virtually every edit you make will cause the formatting and possibly the formatting encoding for the remainder of the document from the edit point.

Thank you for your response.  I've been using ACT! for 13 years and it only started doing this in the last year or so.
