Thanks for this great software.
Is there a way to differentiate between insert and overwrite mode (e.g., use a different cursor when the mode changed, from insert to overwrite and vice versa)?
Let me rephrase my question. Is it possible to have different cursors for Insert and Overwrite mode?
Too bad. Look like I am the only one having this problem. Can Marko please shed some light on this subject?
You're not the only one with this problem, however there is nothing Console can do. As repeated multiple times (and as written in Comments to Console.exe):
Tabbed cool console window (THIS IS NOT A SHELL :-)
What it means is that Console does precisely two things: screen-scraping of a console app and keyboard pass-through to the console app. As you can imagine, neither of these two activities can report whether the console app is in insert or overwrite mode.
I do understand that some apps indicate the mode with a different cursor, however, AFAICS there is no way to retrieve that information.
So, the only suggested workaround [provided that your app indicates the mode with a different cursor] is to show the console window (View -> Console Window).
Sorry to bring in bad news, but, please, don't kill the messenger.
Hi Kirill, thanks for the info.
