I hate the overwrite mode in VI. I never actually want to overwrite, I just want to hit insert to confirm I am in Insert mode before typing, regardless of what state I was in previously, without worrying I may be toggling overwrite mode instead.
Is there a way to configure vi to never toggle to overwrite mode? So the insert key toggles insert mode always?
I'm using Spacemacs so if someone knows how to do this in Spacemacs that would be best, but failing that if I can get the VI syntax I'm sure I can figure out how to add vi configuration to my Spacemacs config file (I'm pretty new to Spacemacs right now).
