Hi All,

I have a simple question, in office for mac when i try to move text say from one line to the line above it it's in delete mode, how can i shift the text without deleting it? I know on PC's insert mode controls this, is there a setting in office, I don't want the delete key to delete text.

Thanks,

Greg

Yep, it's located in the status bar in the bottom. Click to toggle between INS (insert mode, the default) and OVR (overwrite mode).
