I have the latest version of DW and today, I tried to edit a document in Design mode but it wouldn't let me. I could highlight a word and overwrite it, I could delete a word but could type a new word. I quit and restarted DW but to no effect.

  It sounds like you're in overwrite mode.  Hit the INSERT key on your keyboard.
