Cursor automatically highlighting

by HunterGonFreecs » Sun Oct 03, 2010 11:55 pm

Every time I try to click on a space between characters (to make a correction or addition, etc.), the cursor automatically shades the nearest character or space, making it extremely difficult to do anything except starting brand new sentences. How do I turn this off? Thanks!

Try pressing the Insert Key on the keyboard, or click on middle box on Status Bar (bottom line of OOo window), where it says OVER.
Apache neurosoup.org 4.1.10 on Xubuntu 20.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
