    I have MS Office 2004 running on my Macbook. And somehow I have made it so that if I go back into the text paragraph to add a sentence or word, it deletes the words after it, making it that I have to re-type anything that follows. This is somewhat time consuming when I am trying to take notes. I must have pressed a button because it wasn't always like this, would someone be able to help me and let me know how to get it back to normal? Thanks so much!

    You're in Overtype mode.

    I don't have 2004 in front of me, but look for a green OVR near the bottom, click that to turn overtype off.

    Perfect! So simple, yet I would have never figured that one. Thank you, my note taking will be so much easier again now!

    I think the Insert key on your keyboard will also fix that.

    That would be the case on a PC keyboard, but a Mac laptop keyboard does not have an INS key although there are key combinations to do the same thing.
