How do I disable dumb overtype PERMANENTLY? OneNote Web

This feature is very annoying. I cannot seem to identify when and how it gets triggered. A bit of searching reveals that "Insert" or "INS" should toggle the setting for overtype but this it is not working at all for web version of OneNote. I am forced to reload the OneNote tab and then finish writing/ editing the sentence in normal mode but then again It comes back when moving to next line or bullet. As per my research if it is enabled it should be enabled throughout regardless of application but as I am writing this very post in normal mode in another tab within the same chrome windows. the very next OneNote tab is suffering from useless feature called overtype. How is this possible. Or have I gone insane. Please help I may be PEBCAC
