When I'm in Overwrite Mode in Sublime Text 3/gedit, normal keystrokes overwrite characters underneath the cursor.
I expected that pasting from the clipboard would similarly replace characters, but instead it worked as in Insert Mode.
Here's an example to make this clearer:
| stands for cursor. Overwrite Mode is on, the clipboard contains
aaa. This is the text editor:
After pressing Ctrl+V, I'd expect the following to happen:
Instead, in both Sublime Text 3 and gedit, I get:
I've tried the modifier keys Shift and Alt during Ctrl+V, but to no avail.
Is there a way to achieve this functionality?
In particular, I don't want to select the characters that will get overwritten beforehand.
