I often press
^[ to ensure that I've left insert mode and entered normal mode. However, if I'm already in normal mode, Vim displays an annoying flashy screen effect:
How can I prevent Vim from making this flashy screen effect, when pressing
^[ in normal mode?
Bonus: I guess it has no effect of pressing
^[ in normal mode, other than cancelling the current command e.g.
d, so why does Vim makes this flashy screen effect?
