Cant type in editor in PyCharm 2019.3

Each time I type any of these characters [A-Za-z\,\_], it is automatically removed. As if the backspace key got stuck.  All other characters (brackets, quotes, %,etc) work fine.  I don't have vim extension installed.

This is not the problem with keyboard since it works ok outside PyCharm.
