I can't find info in help about whether it should or shouldn't turn on highlighting, but I find it strange that I have to press
# to turn on search highlighting.
How do I enable this in vim if that's 'normal' behaviour.
I've got only these lines in my vimrc related to search highlighting.
if !has('nvim') set smartcase set hlsearch " highlight search terms set incsearch " show search matches as you type endif
