Something really odd is happening randomly when I save changes to a file in Neovim. Often if I press esc:wEnter quickly, hundreds of lines are deleted from the end of the file. So far I have only seen this happen when editing Markdown files. I have also never seen this happen if I type that key sequence slowly. Any ideas what could be causing this?

  • Strange. Have you tried going through your history after it happened? Might be a creative typo in :w that causes this. Did you create a :W by any chance?
