in my plugin, i am joining XML tags together depending on a mapping a use. It also uses so i can make XML snippets repetitive. After inserting the text into a buffer, i would like the cursor to return to the initial position from which I started the 'pasting', but somehow i cannot leave the insert mode.
The function looks like this:
function s:DocbkPrintTag(tag) "mark the initial position execute "normal! mq" let result = repeat(s:DocbkRenderTag(a:tag), v:count1) if !empty(result) call feedkeys('a' . result, 'n') endif "stop insert mode and resore the cursor position execute "normal! `q" endfunction
