Text edit cursor behaves strangely
I have a problem, which now and again keeps returning.
When I type with QT creator, sometimes it happens that the text edit cursor goes into a different state.
It then displays as a black filled rectangle, instead of a vertical line. I don't know how to get back to the normal mode.
(Closing and reopening the file won't help)
Also I don't know how I get into that mode in the first place. It must be some key stroke combination, which perhaps I sometimes do by accident? I'm using a mac, but it also happened to me under windows once (running on a mac).
Perhaps this is an easy to solve thing for a QT pro. I'm pretty new to QT Creator.
thankful for any hint,
Did you hit the insert key? That switches between insert mode and overwrite mode and switches the text cursor to indicate that.
Holding fn and pressing DELETE is the insert key on the mac.
No that's not what I did. It seems to be something else.. It almost seems like some kind of buggy behavior, from what I can tell, at least.. i.e. I don't get what happens, and why it happens..
For example, when QT creator is in the "filled Rect" mode and I press CMD + C (copy) it will go back to normal mode sometimes, and at the same time the current text line is un-indented, as if I pressed DELETE on a tabbed line.
If this continues, I think I'll have to re install :(
Do you have "-- COMMAND --" or something in the lower right corner? That would indicate vi mode...
I tend to just disable the vi plugin to make sure I never end up in it;-)
