Good day!

Do yo have any idea how to fix this issue? Please refer to the screenshot. enter image description here

I don't have the slightest clue why these characters are appearing. My vim-fugitive plugin was working fine before.

Thanks in advance!

    What is your terminal? Have you tried it in another one, say, Konsole, Gnome terminal, Xterm or Alacritty? GVim?

  • Font issue most likely. Or encoding maybe

    @filbranden Since learning that the code point is 001B I've been 99% sure it's ANSI escape sequences and if there's really a [ in there, which seems to be the case, a CSI sequence, in particular. I've just questioned whether they are color-related. It depends on whether the > is an error or not. If not, then I think it has to be a non-color control sequence. Knowing for sure about the > would be nice but it might be more productive to attack this from a different angle. (Like trying a different terminal, for one.)

    Another sighting What's t_TE and t_TI added by vim 8? (confirmed by author as same issue).

    As advised in :h modifyOtherKeys, simply :let &t_TE='' | let &t_TI='' should help.
