Inserting text and adding more characters

I have OO 3.1.1 and am having problems after copy/paste some email text into a OO document using Writer.

As I go back to edit the document, when I add text, instead of both the new characters being inserted and more character spacing available, it will add the new character over the old characters, not giving me space for the new characters to be added.

What happens is that I can add the new typed text into that part of the document but I end up writing over some stuff that I don't want and I want it to be so that I can add text without this problem.

What settings can I change to not have this happen?

It is so weird, I can copy the text from the original document and then past it into a new one and have the old way of inserting text (before I copied and pasted text, if that was the problem, from a email to the document).

pressed "insert" button on your keyboard?

nope, copy paste from email to document, then I am trying to edit the document by placing the mouse cursor to where I want to insert text.
