Re: Turning on sticky keys


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Overtype is exactly what it says.  you can type over something you don’t want.  The regular mode would add the new text alongside the old, rather than obliterating it.  Just a different style of editing.

I’m not sure about this. However, if you press CTRL alt and I while in word, you can cycle between overtype mode—don’t know what that is—and insert where your key normally works. So sorry I couldn’t help more.

This is what I was looking for in a previous post.  How does one turn on
the sticky key only for the insert key?  Thanks.
