How do I open up a file in Overlay mode?

Post by ordba » Fri Aug 27, 2004 12:54 pm

How do I open up a file with the cursor in Overlay mode - it always seems to be in Insert mode? There's a parameter in my old ZEUS.INI file which is InsertMode=0, but that doesn't seem to work? Is this paramater "InsertMode=" still meaningful? My custom Keyboard
mapping file was based on Simple because I didn't want any predefined keys set for info if that helps.

I have all my settings the same as in my previous version. Per upgrade information I copied my old ZCONFIG and ZSCRIPT folders to the new
installation. I'm running version 3.93.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

That is what I like to see. An easy first question for the new forum :)

To achieve this just do the following:

1) Save the following text to the "overwrite.lua" file in the zScript
directory which is located off the Zeus installation directory:

Code: Select all

  -- save text to macro file called zScript\overwrite.lua
  function key_macro()
    -- Turns the character insert mode off.
    InsertModeReset()
  end

  key_macro() -- run the macro
2) Next right click on the Zeus icon located on the desktop and select the properties menu item.

3) In the "target" edit field make the following change:

Code: Select all

  Original text: "C:\Program Files\zeus\zeus.exe"

  New text: "C:\Program Files\zeus\zeus.exe" -m overwrite.lua
This change makes Zeus run the "overwrite.lua" macro on start up. The "overwrite.lua" macro does nothing more than put the cursor into over write mode, as required.

Cheers Jussi
