When editing text, I find it quite irritating that the normal mode commands,
s all copy the text they remove. Don't we have
y for copying? Perhaps I am "just doing it wrong", but for example in the following snippet,
copy me _____ here ____
gg 0 yy jj fh dw h p. But
dw also copies the word so we end up where we started. Instead I do something like
gg 0 yy jj f<Space> p l de. Same number of commands but feels awkward.
To be clear, I'm not asking for a more effective way of achieving the above copy/paste situation (but feel free include anyway). Rather, is it possible to have
d to only delete text and not copy it?
