Hour 2. Entering Text and Moving Around > Inserting New Text into Existing Text

Inserting New Text into Existing Text

When you want to insert text in the middle of a sentence or paragraph that you've already typed, Word assumes that you want the existing text to move out of the way to make room for the new text. Word calls this default behavior insert mode. To insert text, you simply move the insertion point to the place where you want the text to go and start typing. Any text to the right of the insertion point shifts over as you type. Note that when you insert text, you usually need to add a space either at the beginning or the end of the insertion.

If you are revising text throughout your document and want to return to the previous editing location, press Shift+F5.
