Search highlight is very convenient for me when I'm searching, but after I'm done with doing stuff with search matches it's distracting to me, so I'm using
:noh mapped to
F3 everytime I've done what I needed to do with matches.
I'd like to automate this process as it is very annoying to me (this is what vim is about right?).
Is it possible to turn off highlighting if
N isn't pressed for a couple of seconds?
Guys, don't bother explain to me how YOU use vim (toggle highlight in insert mode etc). I know exactly what I want and asked precise question. I know you're trying to be helpful, but you're not, sorry.
