Cursor highlighting appears "behind" or "beneath" waveform

Hi, all! Thanks in advance! ~~~
Even after re-installing Audacity, it seems I’ve messed something up:
I record a waveform. When I go to highlight it, the highlight appears behind or beneath a “banner-like” swath where the waveform is, not ON the waveform.
(I’m working very simply, in mono, for audiobook narration recording.)
As you might guess, this makes exact cursor placement for editing challenging! Thanks again!

Sounds like you’ve accidentally clicked on envelope tool.

click on the i-beam IBeam to escape.

Yes! Thanks very much! Cheers, Rick
