typing over previous typing

Sometimes when I need to insert copy into a previously written sentence the new typing covers up the old typing. I would expect new typing to be treated as an insertion whereby the previous letters move over as I type. Instead I get an indecipherable mess. Is there a setting I don’t know about ?

Hello Stefne,
Thats a strange one. Until the real help comes along, may I suggest that you have possibly activated some sort of keyboard shortcut. I would try the menu Tools/Options/Keyboard and reset all… worth a try. Good luck.

That’s a windows thing known as text overwrite, not a Scriv specific thing - pushing the insert key accidentally tends to trigger it, but luckily pushing the same should turn it off. :slight_smile:
