Text insert-overwrite switching autonomously

I’ve been encountering an issue when entering text in Axure 9 whereby the editable area switches from inserting characters to overwriting them. I have to select the “Insert” key on my keyboard to reverse the switch. This is happening only in Axure.

I have:

  • enabled and disabled the Single Key Shortcuts preference setting
