How to overtype text in Word
Authored by: juandesant on Feb 09, '07 08:48:33AM

I really, really don't know why "overtype", shomething that was useful when the UI for word processors was command-line based, survived the coming of the GUI… In the Mac, Apple decided not to keep the Ins key, and Word was created for the Mac first…

I remember reading Rick Shaut's blog about how this was something added under consumer demand somewhere around Word 6… but I cannot find the post.
