View Full Version : Keyboard help!!

18-08-2007, 10:39

I have pressed a key/s on my computer which makes the computer delete the next character as you type ...

So say I make a spelling mistake - go back and put the cursor on the letter I want to remove - delete the letter - but then it starts to delete the rest of the letters forward when I type ... replacing them with the new typing ... does that make sense?

I hope Ive explained it correctly ... this happened once before ... but I cant remember what I had done to change it back ... :(

Any help would be appreciated ...

The insert button? Above the delete?

Try checking "overtype" at the bottom of the screen, or "replace as you type" in Tools or Format (?) - one of those places!

The "insert" key should do the trick, however. Hit it once (gently!) and see what happens.

I found the button GP :D

But do I just press it? Or do I have to do like an ALT INS?

Maybe I should just try it .... hang on ....

I dont know what Ive done ... but its not doing it now :rolleyes: ... it was on another post .... I wonder if it just does it on the other post? :(

If it happens again - I'll try the INS button ....

Thankyou so much ... *hugs* I had visions of me sooking all day :P over this ...

Hope you're well!
