Cursor Insert/Overtype Mode


#1

The Insert key doesn’t appear to change the cursor from insert to overtype mode. This is so unfathomably fundamental to typing that I don’t know how it could have been missed.

Expended Behavior

Pressing the Ins or Insert key should change the cursor insert mode between Insert (Where characters are inserted between the two characters the cursor is between.) and Overtype mode (Where the cursor indicates the current character cell, usually with a graphical underscore; And typing characters overwrites the character in the indicated cell with the typed character).


#2

There is an Issue open on this here:


#3

Truer words were never spoken before. This is one of the features I miss the most.
There is a package that implements this feature here, but it doesn’t seem to be working with the latest version.


#4

The package now works again! :thumbsup:
