Insert/Overstrike Modes

UltraEdit allows editing in both insert and overstrike modes.  The mode of operation is indicated in the status bar at the bottom of the UltraEdit window. The insert/overstrike mode is changed with the INSERT key. The mode is toggled when the INSERT key is pressed.

 

If insert mode is selected, the second area of the status bar is clear; if overstrike mode is selected, the second area of the status bar shows ' OVR'.

 

Insert mode causes a key to be inserted into the document at the position of the cursor. Overstrike mode causes the character immediately to the right of the cursor to be overwritten by the new character.

 

If the editor active window is in Hex mode the active window is always in overstrike mode.  To insert text in Hex mode, use the Hex Insert/Delete command from the Edit menu.
