Kile Typing Cursor Changes

Postby swagatopablo » Sun Mar 10, 2013 6:06 pm

Using Kile 2.1.0 on Linux Mint 13. While typing, sometimes the typing cursor suddenly changes to a black block and typing anything replaces the characters next to the current position instead of adding new text. I am not sure whether this is triggered unknowingly by some keyboard command. Please tell me how can it happen? It may be some useful feature of kile which I am not aware about.

I don't think this is related to Kile. It happens if you use the »ins« key(insert) (German »Einfg« (Einfügen)). Press it again and the cursor should be its old self again :)

No need to be sorry... these things happen to all of us. :)
