Any Abiword users out there?

Hi,
I tend to use Abiword for no frills word processing, and find it very useful.
However I seem to be stuck in 'Overwrite' mode, and can't find a way of getting back to 'insert' mode.
Can anyone help, please?

Select Tools/Preferences. On the General tab there's a tick box for "Enable overwrite mode toggle", tick the box then your Insert key will toggle between Overwrite & Insert

I may have an older version of Abiword, there's no such option under Tools/Preferences on my version.

However, it occurred to me later that I could uninstall, then reinstall Abiword, which should cure my problem - and make sure I have the latest version!

thank you for your help,

tristar
