Lesson 4. Editing Documents > Adding or Replacing Text and Moving in the Docume...

Adding or Replacing Text and Moving in the Document

After you have completed a draft of your document, you probably will find yourself in a situation where you want to add and delete text in the document as you edit your work. Word makes it very easy for you to add new text and delete text that you don't want. You also will find that, whether you use the mouse or the keyboard to move around in your document as you edit, Word offers a number of special keystrokes and other tricks that make moving within the document a breeze. Figure 4.1 highlights some of these tools and Word screen areas.

Adding New Text

You actually have two possibilities for adding text to the document: insert and typeover. To insert text into the document and adjust the position of the existing text, place the I-beam mouse pointer where you want to insert the new text. Click the mouse to place the insertion point at the chosen position. Make sure that the OVR indicator on the Status bar is not active (it will be gray rather than bolded). This means that you are in the insert mode.
