I understand that when in insert mode the cursor is described as between characters, and when in normal mode the cursor is supposed to be on a valid character. I have been having a lot of trouble with this behavior recently.
If I enter insert mode I will use
_ to represent the cursor
and append some text to the end of a line_
When I exit insert mode the cursor is dropped to the beginning of the line below it so I would end up here:
and append some text to the end of a line _
This really breaks up my flow when I am typing and I would like to modify the behavior so that the cursor is instead left at the end of the line. Since there is no character there ...
I know it wont just stay here_
But I would prefer it if the cursor just moved to the character before when I exit insert mode
So I would end up her_
Pretending there is an e at the end of that line and I have the cursor on it.
Does anyone know a way to achieve this? All of the documentation I have read suggests that this is the normal behavior anyway.
I have remapped
jk but if I remove that from my
.vimrc I still en up at the beginning of the next line
