Default inserting text

there must be a toggle that lets you select between inserting text without removing text, and one that is an overwrite function. I can't seem to locate it.

Do you mean in "Find & Replace", or in a macro, or in an AutoText function?

mafac, What version of Word are you using?

In Word 2007, you've got a couple of options. Select the option 'Typing replaces selected text', or 'Use the Insert key to control overtype mode', along with 'Use overtype mode'.

Hope that helps,

Matt
