I noticed using evim that when I press Shift key plus any direction key (so
<S-Down> etc., the editor automatically switches to insert-select mode, letting me select the text block with direction keys.
Since I think this mode is more handy than typing ESC, v, etc. each time, I tried to replicate this behavior using shortcuts with gvim, for example
:imap <S-Up> <Esc>:v<Up>
without success. No way.
How can I replicate this evim's behavior in gvim ? Is this possible ?
