I just realized that the standard setting of is actual not 'going back one space', but deleting everything selected. Is there some basic way to get that some functionality in Vim visual mode, without resorting to in normal mode.
Also I noticed that was even listed in
:map, which I found odd...
EDIT: Okay, I now tried it with
vim -u NONE and then
:map, which showed me that...
v <BS> "-d v <D-x> "*d v <D-c> "*y v <D-v> "-d"*P n <D-v> "*P
These are the only mappings, but why are these mapping there anyway? I tried
vunmap <bs> but that doesn't work (it still doesn't go back like I want it to)
Okay so I made a screencapture to show my dilemma.
It should be self explanatory: On the left I call vim normally, load all my plugins, but then disable my mappings.
When I start visual mode I can use
<space>) to change lines.
On the right, using
vim -u NONE I can't do that.
There must be some setting to set that behavior...
