4.9.4 Insert

Syntax: Insert [0|1]
Abbreviation: I

sets the insert flag. If this flag is true, the text you type is inserted, otherwise it overwrites the existing characters. This also governs the behaviour of the InsertChar and InsertString commands.

If you invoke Insert with no arguments, it will toggle the flag. If you specify 0 or 1, the flag will be set to false or true, respectively. A lower case ‘i’ will appear on the status bar if the flag is true.
