Command up.insert.mode Command/Update Processor
Applicable release versions: AP
Category Update Processor (113)
Description toggles "insert/replace" mode and is used to insert new text before the character at the current cursor position.

When text is entered in the insert mode, the following text is "opened" and moved to the next line until insert mode is toggled, or a cursor movement command is typed.

The letter "I" is displayed at the top right corner of the screen when in "insert" mode. An "O" is displayed in "replace" (overtype) mode, which is the default state.

As text is entered in either mode, UP word-wraps the text as necessary. That is, if a character string is longer than the remaining space on the current line, the entire string is moved to the next line. This allows typing continuously within a paragraph (attribute) without pressing the "<return>" key.

A new attribute (paragraph), may be created by pressing "<return>" while in insert mode.

When UP is first entered, it is automatically in "overtype" (replace) mode. Any characters entered will be typed "over" the characters on the screen.
