   Underscore cursor

This setting determines the type of cursor/caret that will normally be displayed in the editor.  

 

Overstrike Cursor/Caret type

   Block caret for overstrike mode, normal caret for insert mode

   Inverted - Normal caret for overstrike mode, block caret for insert

   Block caret disabled, always use normal caret

This setting determines how the type of cursor/caret will be affected by Overstrike Mode settings within the editor. 

 

Allow positioning beyond line end

This option allows the cursor to be positioned beyond the end of text in a line.  

 

Underscore is word stop for Ctrl left/right arrow

If this option is selected the cursor will stop at occurrences of "_" in text when CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT ARROW are pressed.  The default is for this option not to be selected. Please note that the setting chosen for this option can affect the functionality of macros/scripts that include navigation operations.

 

CamelCase naming stops for Ctrl left/right arrow

If this option is selected the cursor will stop at uppercase letters in mixed case words when CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT ARROW are pressed.
