Yup. I don't use Word that much, but somewhere there's a control for
insert or overwrite. Seeing that Word powers my Outlook, I find that
sometimes in editing an email, all of a sudden it starts overwriting and
I don't know how it happened.
Strange little quirks.... and then, in the next release, they move it
and hide it somewhere else.

Subject: Thanks--was Cut N' Paste
I rebooted and the Cut And Paste is back to normal on all levels,
including Edit, keyboard, and so on. I can only assume I hit some
obscure keystroke combination that disabled the function.
I'll never cease to be amazed at how astonishingly fragile Word is and
how a single random finger jump can bollix your whole day. ;)
Thanks for the tips!
