Inexplicable activation of the INSERT function

This latest update has somehow introduced a weird bug, where the INSERT function gets activated for reasons I can’t identify. I don’t know if there’s a sequence of keys I’m pressing that’s activating it, or it’s random. I never use the INSERT key, and my pinky can’t even reach it on the keyboard naturally, so it’s not me.

Check the link provided that the insert function hasn’t been toggled on. From what I’ve been reading its on by default and will be fixed on the next iteration. Lots of people are reporting this.

For those who are looking for the option, it can be found under:

Options —> Editing —> Options (tab) —> Use the Insert key to control overtype mode (checkbox)

Thanks to Krastev for the steps.


Bug already posted and fix promised to default to insert vs overtype
