how come this happens:

i'll type a post and go to add in another sentence and the words i'd previosuly typed started getting 'eaten' by the new ones. it doesn't happen a lot but it does happen.
does anyone know why that happens?

Hit the "insert" key on your keyboard.

I thought about the insert key too but you cannot activate it in these posts - at least not on my computer.

I think that might be the reason.

I tried the insert button first and KE is right it won't work.. but, the page up button
does. Try it and see if it recreates the problem.
