Paste-ing in overwrite/replace mode doesn't overwrite

Paste-ing in overwrite/replace mode doesn't overwrite

Postby odysseas on Mon Jun 24, 2013 6:40 am

I am not sure if this should be categorized as a feature request or bug report, so I am posting it as a suggetsion/feature request.
When I am in replace/overwrite mode on a Mac (V 2.0.1, Build 2217) and I paste using Command-V the pasted string is inserted instead of over-writing the existing characters.
I think the correct behavior should be to overwrite them.
By the way
- in vim pasting while in overwrite (R) mode replaces characteres
- in emacs pasting while in "overwrite-mode" replaces characteres
- in textmate pasting while in overwrite (R) mode inserts characteres
- in ms word pasting while in overtype mode inserts characters

(tried to find any related post/topic but couldn't - sorry if I am breaking any etiquette)

+1000000 - This behaviour is frustrating me too!

I also find it extremely unintuitive (and cumbersome) that auto-completions and auto-matched parenthesis are inserted when in overwrite mode.

I have submitted this behaviour to the GitHub issue tracker: https://github.com/SublimeText/Issues/issues/346
