Hi DaisyE
Just check whether your SCROLL LOCK is in ON position

I have the full size flat Mac keyboard. It's the F14 key to lock/unlock the scroll.

Press your Scroll Lock key, should be near your numbers keys. It may have accidentally gotten pressed earlier and lock keys so they wouldn't scroll.

Restore an older version of the file you are working in. All should be well. Worked for me.
