It was quite disturbing to see the code overwritten instead of inserting. Listen now.

How do i make it permanent for overwrite mode? The zero must be from numeric keypad.

If you don't know which one, remap it here and hit it to toggle this mode:. NibragWeb you can't. I installed the IdeaVim plugin, thinking it was something else. The reason I had the block instead of the cursor was because the editor was in vim's View Mode as opposed to Insert Mode.
Had this happen on a Mac while connected to a Windows machine via Remote Desktop, somehow while attempting to type open and closed curly braces both of which typed. I couldn't find any solution to trigger it back, from attempting to finger-fumble re-discover the initial trigger, to all the suggestions here and some other sites. Luckily, Insert mode is set per file at least in my case , so closing and re-opening the file was an easy fix. Search "print screen" button on your keyboard and press it It worked for me coz "insert" and "print screen" are same button in my keyboard Then someone mentioned that it occurred when opening every new file which was the same as my scenario.
Unchecking the Vim Emulator did the trick for me! I have this very annoying problem: every time I open my python project, the cursor is in the caret mode The "Use block caret" is switched off. I've tried to select the checkbox and then unselect it. Doesn't help.
Please, help! The version of the PyCharm: PyCharm Disable IdeaVim plug-in?
I just encounter a similar problem and was confused. I noticed that the cursor changed because I pressed a certain key on my keyboard mistakenly. I pressed numeric key 0 and the cursor went back to normal.
