Simple emberassing noob question..
    #2179333 - 12/15/03 01:16 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

When typing a post on the Shroomery, sometimes I wan't to insert text in the middle of a sentence, and I click or use the arrow buttons to move the flashing cursor to the place where I wan't to insert the text.

Then, when I start typing, sometimes it will move all the other text along, inserting the new text. And sometimes it will just overwrite the existing text.(annoying).

I can't seem to figure out WHY it does one thing one time and another thing another time. And, I can't seem to figure out how to change it from overwrite to insert myself.

Please help me save my typing fingers. :smile:

Depends upon the state of your insert button. Insert toggles between "insert" and "overwrite". When you see it overwriting characters, hit insert to switch modes.
