I have the following situation. If I open a file in Vim, say by running
vim myfile.tex, select something in visual mode, and do
"+y, it is in the system clipboard as one would hope. If however I open a project, say
vim -S myproject.vim, in which the same files are open,
"+y does not change the system clipboard. This behavior is actually new; it did not do it before yesterday. I did not to my knowledge change anything in the configuration in the intervening period.
My current default Vim does return
-clipboard among other things from
vim --version, so I suppose I am lucky it works in even setting, but I am reluctant to switch to a different version of Vim because I switched to the present one because another extension was broken. The computer is running Ubuntu 22.04.
