change function of Insert key

  Andrew 11:34 26 Jun 03

I would like to show my students how to change what the Insert key does instead of the annoying overtype function. I've seen this somewhere but a search of the helproom hasn't come up with anything. Ideally, I'd like it to operate the Insert Picture (or similar) type function instead.

In which case I think what you want is in Tools>Options>Edit "Use the INS key for paste"

Hope it helps

Thanks Tony. I did settle for that in the absence of anything else but I do recall an article (must have been in another mag) which allocated a completely fresh function to that key. I'll leave the topic open for a while and see if anyone else has some ideas.
