I use the
a formatoption to make my text hard wrap, and the
n formatoption to recognize numbered lists. The help says that the
n option should use the
formatlistpat regex to determine which lines not to mess with, but it doesn't seem to be working for me; vim is joining all my bulleted lines.
These are the values of my options:
formatoptions=tqlran textwidth=65 formatlistpat=^\s*\d\+\.\s\+\|^[-*+]\s\+\|^\[^\ze[^\]]\+\]: filetype=markdown
Also, formatlistpat was "Last set from usr/local/Cellar/vim/8.0.1650_1/share/vim/vim80/ftplugin/markdown.vim", so I know it's not just a matter of me not escaping the regex correctly when setting it.
An example of the bad behavior can be seen in this video.
Any idea how I can make vim stop joining lines like this?
