I've come across the following a few times accidentally (I think when pressing capital Q):

Entering Ex mode. Type "visual" to go to Normal mode.

It seems that Ex mode works almost identically to : mode so I was wondering if that's ever actually used?

  • @Biggybi yes, thank you I'll check that out. Out of curiosity, do you ever use Ex mode yourself?

  • I never found myself in a situation where I felt I needed it. I'm basically only aware of its existence.
