I'm going through the vimtutor, and in Lesson 2.1 I read

NOTE: The letter d will appear on the last line of the screen as you type it. Vim is waiting for you to type w .

On my MacOS-default vim, I don't see it appearing on the last line of screen. What setting might control this?

    @klaus :set ruler did produce some status on the right bottom area. But it still is not showing the d after it's pressed. This does sound like a step in the right direction, though. – gds Mar 16 '19 at 21:19

You must set showcmd to see this
