to insert the same text inside several lines in one particular line <ctrl> + <v> to select the line and then <shift> + <i> to insert a texte BEFORE the particular column. Is there a way to do the same but insert a text AFTER the particular column, at the end of lines of same length instead of using 10,12s/$/pattern_to_be_inserted/gc?

  1. Select visual block, press $A and add text -- it would be added to the ends of all lines in that visual block.

  2. Select visual block, press A and add text -- it would be added to the end of the block for each line.
