Insert Mode

Displays the current insert mode. You can toggle between INSRT = insert and OVER = overwrite.

Click in the field to toggle the modes (except in the LibreOffice Basic IDE, since only the Insert key is active).




In the insert mode, new text is inserted at the cursor position and the following text is shifted to the right. The cursor is displayed as a vertical line.


In the overwrite mode, any existing text is replaced by new text. The cursor is displayed as a thick vertical line.
