Note pad ++ question

+1 Rhen Bartlett` · October 17, 2014
I am new to the site and trying to teach myself code. I am following along with the tutorial videos. My issue is that when using notepad ++ when typing there is an underscore as my courser. I need a horizontal courser. Every time i click to type it deletes the characters in from of the courser. Can anyone please help? Thanks

First Uninstall Notpad++ => Use Sublime Text, Atom, or Vim.

Just press the insert button on the keyboard, that will solve it.

Try completely uninstall it and reinstall it and if that doesn't work try another editor.

I figured it out. You have to change it on the status bar. Thanks for your time anyway man!

I have went through everything I can not figure it out. It is really slowing me down!!!! Making it really hard to edit the code. I have to completely rewrite each line if i mess something up.

It may be the insert button.  Also try Settings, Preferences, Editing. Some options in there you can play with.
