    Insert (2003)

    Dear Loungers,

    I believe there is some keyboard combination that turns on the “insert” key, because every now and then it is activated even though I don’t press it. Does anyone know what that combo is?

    Regards,

    JMT

    As far as I know, the only built-in ways to toggle insert/overtype are:
    - Pressing the Insert key.
    - Pressing the Ins key on the numeric keypad while Num Lock is off.
    - Double clicking the OVR indicator in the status bar at the bottom of the Word window.

    It is possible to assign another keyboard shortcut to this toggle. You can check as follows:
    - Select Tools | Customize...
    - Click Keyboard...
    - Select All Commands in the list of Categories on the left.
    - Select Overtype in the list of Commands on the right.
    - The Current Keys box will list the currently assigned keyboard shortcuts.

    Hello Hans,

    I follow your instructions, but found no key assigned to "insert" besides the insert key. That is most odd; maybe I am just accidentally double clicking on OVR.

    Kind regards,

    Look at the Edit tab in Options and see whether or not the check box shown below is selected.
