I am running Vim version 8.0.563 on Solaris and when I run Vim, the CtrlV block selection works as expected, I type
^V and move the cursor and a block of text is highlighted by columns. So far, so good.
Meanwhile, for another user running Vim from my directory with my
.vimrc file, this does not work. The
^V is ignored and moving the cursor, moves the cursor but nothing is highlighted. Regular
v, block mode works but the
^V column block mode is broken.
I tried entering:
vim --noplugin -u /dev/null
and it acts the same. I checked the shared libraries and they are the same. I tried clearing out (almost) all the environment variables, still no joy.
Does anybody have any good ideas of what is wrong or something else to try?
Thank you in advance.
