I seem to be stuck in an overwrite mode when I try to edit a “writer” document “odt” file. I need to turn off that feature.
Two methods -
Insertkey toggles Overwrite
Status Barnear center should see
Overwrite- click on it. It is also a toggle. If status bar is not visible it can be turned on from menu -
It just worked as promised though I still can’t find any “overwrite” icon in the middle of the Status Bar.
Works for me —
FWIW, up to v184.108.40.206 at least, “Overwrite” is only in the status bar if already in “Overwrite” mode, otherwise it is blank.
And if you click on that blank area, “Overwrite” will appear. The question and answer were about turning OFF Overwrite.
Thank you - I was not aware of that functionality. No criticism intended.
