Constantly having to retype everything in workspaces?

Every time I go back to correct or add something extra it is constantly typing over what I have already written instead of just inserting it. It doesn't do that in the videos so does it do it to me? And can I turn it off? It's frustrating constantly having to go nack and re-type everything.

I do not use workspace I use notepad++ being on a windows os. There is an insert key if I press that it will type over what is already typed. Press the key again and will add to the typying instead of typing over the text. Might be worth a try.

Yep I did realise as I posted I may have pressed that, but I think I'll do the same and use my own editor instead of workspaces in future. Thanks.
