In LO, Mac X version, the Insert/Overwrite Mode is missing from

Clicking next to the Language icon will bring up Overwrite, but it does
not work.
Using LO under Windows the behaviour is quite inconsistent:
1) The word Insert never shows up
2) Using the Insert key it toggles as expected (not so well when editing in
3) You need to double click the blank area (where the word Insert should
show) to switch to Overwrite mode; you only need to click once on Overwrite
to switch to Insert mode...

Hope this helps...

Does the cursor change "style" between the two modes?  "Overwrite mode"
looks "thicker" than "Insert mode".  That is the way I see which mode I
am using, for both Windows and Linux installs.  For 4.0.5, it states
"Overwrite" in the bottom bar, but not "Insert"  Of course I rarely look
at that bottom bar while I am typing a document.  I look at the cursor
