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, where only the Insert mode is active). If the cursor is positioned in a text document, you may also use the Insert key (if available on your keyboard) to toggle the modes.




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.
