Another Open Office problem

I`ve been using spreadsheets for a while, and not seen this before... can anyone tell me how it started and how to end it...

 

When I want to enter a new row of data I go to "insert"  "row" and it would normally just put a new row of empty cells above the place where the cursor was... and the first cell would be surrounded with a heavy black outline, ready to accept the data.

recently, there has been a pair of red lines right across the spread sheet, and when I have entered and saved the data, those lines are still there.... and remain there, even though I try to enter new data on a lower row level,

I must have clicked on something by accident.. but I don`t know what the purpose of the red lines are, so I don`t know what to look for to "un check" it...

anyone help remove these red lines... forever, please.!

Sounds like you have Track Changes on.

Look at: Edit > Changes > Record and make sure it isn't selected.
