How stop entry of exponent?

When entering a polynomial, say f(x) = a*x^3 + b*x^2 + c*x + d, the program sees the first up caret and forces everything after that into the first exponent. So, the first exponent becomes, not 3 by itself, but 3 + b ... etc (see screenshot, where I stopped after the "b" got forced into the exponent).

I assume there's a way to fix this, but I can't find it.

TIA,

Mark

It's the same in every maths software. Use the arrow keys to move the caret "outside" the exponent, or outside the automatic parentheses that define the argument of a function, etc...

The pic you have posted refers to v.5, where the nice maths display of formulas is not implemented, so in that version you just type in your equation as it is.
