I recently upgraded vim for the first time in 5 years. Now, when I type in a search expression, the cursor in the buffer changes position with each key stroke to highlight a potential match. I want to disable this because it prevents me from using
<Ctrl-r><Ctrl-w> to yank in the word where I positioned the cursor just before beginning a search.
What is the option for disabling the movement of the cursor when typing in a search expression?
