    Overwrite? (XP)

    This has to be a stupid question, but how does one turn on overwrite in PowerPoint? I coldn't find anything in Options, or on the lower frame.

    This was important, btw, in translating an existing PPT into Spanish.

    Thanks, Michael

    OK - I wasn't clear. In Word you can clickon OVR or press your 'insert' key so that when you type, what yu type erases the previous material. That's what I mean.

    I believe that's only a feature in wordprocessing applications.

    Maybe you could describe what you're trying to do and we could suggest some alternatives, such as copying to Word, using Overtype there, copying it back.

    I had a presentation in English, and was translating it into Spanish. Beinbg able to overwrite would have made things quicker. No biggy - was surprised I couldn't do it, is all. M
