I love the text knock-out option, but there are times when I want to change from one or the other. I haven't found a way to turn "knock-out" on or off, so I erase and re-type.
Is there a better way?

Perfect, thx. I know I had seen it somewhere, but kept looking under text/change. Every time I looked there, it still didn't show up :)
