Hi everyone! I accidentally activated Overwrite mode in Trados Studio 2017 and cannot turn it off. To be more precise, it can be changed to Insert mode if I hit the Insert key, but the problem is that I don't need either the Overwrite or the Insert mode because they both erase the characters to the right when I'm typing. How do I return to the normal mode that does not erase previously typed characters?

I'm using Windows 7 if this matters. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Thank you Vladimir!

However, I found another decision. In a different topic I read that Trados shows this behavior when there are not enough system resources. This was my case; I rebooted my computer and everything has been fine since.
