German term or phrase: ÜB--Überschreiben
OK, seems too simple to even post, but I only have the German version of MS Word here. What's the function that allows you to type over a word when you enter it? It's in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. In German it's "ÜB", for "überschreiben", but I can't remember that it's "overwrite OW" in English. Can someone refresh my memory?
