Overtype Function?

Does Scrivener have an ‘overtype’ function for revising existing text? In word it’s the difference between Insert/Overtype, and a feature I frequently toggle between in revising, but I cannot find this feature in either the Mac or Windows version of Scrivener.

No, unfortunately that particular mode of editing has fallen out of favour. Now it is all select-and-replace. The Insert key doesn’t even do anything in most programs, even those that support overtyping.

Ahh, I guess I am a dinosaur, I still use Overtype every other minute. Oh well, thanks for your reply, much appreciated.

Yeah, there is a reason I still use Vim. :slight_smile:

I would use that function too!
