For some reason i keep getting into overwrite mode. That is when i edit text in a post it overwrites existing text instead of inserting new text...

Ok the insert button toggles it. I'm not hitting the insert key but at least i know how to get out of it now.

Thanks.

My insert button on my keyboard is right next to my backspace button. I have no idea if it is like that on every keyboard or not. It gets me all the time.
