Disable Overwrite Mode

Setting Disable Overwrite Mode is used to disable the action of the keyboard's Insert key. The Insert key toggles between insert mode and overwrite mode. Insert mode causes characters typed at the keyboard to be inserted at the text cursor position in the current document. Any characters to the right of the text cursor moved further to the right to make room for the newly typed characters. Insert mode is the normal typing mode. When the Insert key is toggled into overwrite mode then characters typed at the keyboard will overwrite any characters to the right of the text cursor.

Some users find that they occasionally press the Insert key inadvertently and are then confused by the behavior of typing in overwrite mode. Assigning a value of "1" to Disable Overwrite Mode prevents Jarte from entering the overwrite typing mode when the Insert key is pressed:

Disable Overwrite Mode=1

The default value is "0", which means the Insert key will toggle between insert and overwrite modes:

Disable Overwrite Mode=0
