In
 2        overwrite mode, which can be toggled by pressing
 3        <code class="keycap">INSERT</code>, one character is deleted from in front of the
 4        caret position for every character that is inserted. The caret is drawn
 5        as a horizontal line while overwrite mode is active. The status bar also
 6        indicates if overwrite mode is active; see <a class="xref" href="status-bar.html" title="The Status Bar">the section called &#8220;The Status Bar&#8221;</a>
 7        for details.</p><p>Inserting text while there is a selection will replace the
 8        selection with the inserted text.</p><p>When inserting text, the <code class="keycap">TAB</code> and
 9        <code class="keycap">ENTER</code> keys might not behave entirely like you expect
10        because of various indentation features; see <a class="xref" href="indent.html" title="Tabbing and Indentation">the section called &#8220;Tabbing and Indentation&#8221;</a>
11        for details.</p><p>The simplest way to delete text is with the
12        <code class="keycap">BACKSPACE</code> and <code class="keycap">DELETE</code> keys. If nothing
13        is selected, they delete the character before or after the caret,
14        respectively. If a selection exists, both delete the selection.</p><p>More advanced deletion commands are described in <a class="xref" href="words.html" title="Working With Words">the section called &#8220;Working With Words&#8221;</a>, <a class="xref" href="lines.html" title="Working With Lines">the section called &#8220;Working With Lines&#8221;</a> and <a class="xref" href="paragraphs.html" title="Working With Paragraphs">the section called &#8220;Working With Paragraphs&#8221;</a>.</p></div><div class="navfooter"><hr><table width="100%" summary="Navigation footer"><tr><td width="40%" align="left"><a accesskey="p" href="selection.html">Prev</a> </td><td width="20%" align="center"><a accesskey="u" href="editing.html">Up</a></td><td width="40%" align="right"> <a accesskey="n" href="undo-redo.html">Next</a></td></tr><tr><td width="40%" align="left" valign="top">Selecting Text </td><td width="20%" align="center"><a accesskey="h" href="index.html">Home</a></td><td width="40%" align="right" valign="top"> Undo and Redo</td></tr></table></div></body></html>
