What you mean by "over writing"?
Does it do it in other applications? Try hitting the "Ins" or "Insert" button to see if that's the problem.
say i write a sentance in the "reply thread" box then decide i need to add a work at the beggining of the sentance if i move the cursor to the begging of the sentance and type, my words which are already there, rather being moved along get writed over the top of which really mess things up. :yikes:
i think the prob is on your keyboard mate
hit the "insert" key and your problems should clear up
it is to the right of the typing keys in a little group with page up page down and home

Yay thanks Tant.. and Adi!
Oh yeah, i hate that. Solved!
Thanks Adi and Tant! I have the same problem too, just not here, but in Word. :D
in word you click on "OVR" at the bottom of the screen so it turns grey rather than black!
I think word has a sperate setting for this Andy
i dont have word installed at the moment or i would tell you exactly where to find it
try options from the tools menu
i think it is a tickbox that says "overwrite existing text"
In word you can also use the Insert button to toggle the overwrite function. The OVR changes between black (on) to grey (off)
Your correct tant its in the edit section of the popup that appears, ''overtype mode''
For a moment there I thought there was a setting to stop people from rambling on and on... I thought
:yikes: .oO(i'm doomed!)
I'm glad it's for the append/replace settings :biggthump
