Vim has excellent inbuilt autocompletions. I've noticed that using C-x C-k (see :h i_CTRL-X_CTRL-K for more) for dictionary completion will not respect the case by default.

For instance, if I type Carr, Vim might suggest carrot instead of Carrot. Is there a way to have vim respect case (or at least offer to respect case) with dictionary autocompletion?

set smartcase

to your vimrc should fix your problem

  • infercase could also be set, I think. Ah, but it implies ignorecase. Feb 17, 2015 at 14:20
