I had the following piece of Markdown text that I wanted to edit:
* 2-6 for a moka pot * 7-10 for a drip machine * 5-12 for a pour-over
When I had the cursor over the number
6 in the first bullet point, pressing Ctrl-A should “Add
[count] to the number or alphabetic character at or after the cursor”. Instead of giving
7, Vim decreased the number from
5. When I tried to decrease the number using Ctrl-X, it incremented instead. It was like both commands were doing the opposite of what they should.
I checked to see if some key-mapping was over-writing Vim’s defaults but running both
:map <C-A> and
:nmap <C-A> printed
No mapping found
C-X. What’s going on?
