Default how can i prevent eating words as i type?

as i type, for revision purposes, the existing text is replaced as i type the
desired text. how can i type so the text is simply pushed back instead of
being erased?

do-dads,

If your status bar is displayed, use the mouse and click on the black OVR
toggle.

Press the "insert" button on your keyboard just once when
you're in the document; this should fix the erasing issue

At the bottom of the screen where it says 'page 1 sec 1' etc there is 'rec
trk ext ovr' If ovr is in bold it means it will eat your words when you
type!! Press insert to change it!
