Somehow my cursor jumps to the right in some filetypes (html, vue, json, maybe others...) when I switch lines with j or k

Jumpy cursor...

My .vimrc is kinda messy atm...but I've seen worse... :)

Really hoping for a solution, I guess it's a plugin but I've disabled most of them one by one, still the same "error".... So I'm out of ideas really.

  • Do you notice a delay between when you press J or K and when the cursor actually moves? If so, a mapping is definitely in play. Do you notice anything out of the ordinary with :map j or :map k? What about in the bottom right of the screen when you press a key (see :h showcmd)? – ZeroKnight Nov 9 '18 at 20:49
  • Yeah, I've noticed the delay, that's why I've disabled the jk, kj <Esc> mappings, I thought there was a "hidden" space behind the <Esc> somewhere, didn't help tho. There's nothing showing up in the showcmd area when pressing j or k. I suspect a weird glitch in one of the plugins still.... Although I dis- and re-enabled all plugins I've recently installed... ¯_(ツ)_/¯ – dustypaws Nov 9 '18 at 20:53
  • Ruled out tmux....vim behaves the same in a simple terminal... :/ – dustypaws Nov 9 '18 at 21:10
  • Can you check the output of map as mentioned above? Does this persist with vim -u NONE ? – D. Ben Knoble Nov 9 '18 at 23:00
  • Sorry @ZeroKnight I misunderstood what exactly you wanted. So @d-ben-knoble :map k and :map j return no mapping vim -u NONE, so with vanilla settings, everything works as it should. I guess it's a misbehaving plugin. :/ – dustypaws Nov 10 '18 at 9:18

Okay, so in my case disabling thaerkh/vim-workspace solved the issue. If it's the fault of the plugin or a combination of plugins and settings, I don't know. I might investigate that further at a later point and post my findings here. I really love that plugin, it's like vim-obsession, but fully automated...so yeah...disabling it is somewhat annoying. :/
