Toggle Insert/Overwrite Mode not working in "Editor"

I notice that when I set a keyboard shortcut to "toggle Insert/Overwrite Mode" (as shown in attached screenshot), this is applied only to the Command Window and it does not work in the Editor (Matlab 2021b). I try to change the keyboard button but the issue remains :-(.
Could you help me to solve this issue? Have I turn on some additional options?
Thanks in advance...
All the best

From R2021b, "Toggle Insert/Overwrite Mode" shortcut only works for command window. That's why you are not able to use it in editor.

This seems like very basic functionality. I don't think it's a surprise that people would object to its removal. If there were a good reason for the removal, it should be given when asked.

Can't understand how someone actively removed a good, understandable and useful feature...

It was really a bad idea to remove this feature in the editor. There are cases where the overwrite mode is missing and typing is really annoying. A user survey may not appeal to all people who just want to use the software and are now wondering why overwrite mode is not implemented - like me. There are also many features that I don't use and still wouldn't question.
Best regards,
