You can contact Wolfram Research Technical Support at

I suspect that you have inadvertently changed a setting in the front end
so that Input style cells use InputForm (one-dimensional syntax)
instead of StandardForm (two-dimensional syntax).  To determine whether
this is the case, click on the front end menu command sequence:

	Cell -> Default Input Format Type 

See if it is set to InputForm.  Changing it to StandardForm should
reenable the keystrokes that you report to be disabled.

If that does not solve the problem, or if I have somehow misunderstood
your question, please let me know.
