I'm not really sure how to describe what I'd like to do. Basically I'd like to use visual block mode to select a region of text and then paste it "as a collection of lines" rather than as a rectangle.
a b c d e f g h
gg0<c-v>Gy the rectangle
a/c/e/g is in the default yank register (I forgot what it's called).
If I then paste the rectangle
p I get the following:
aa b cc d ee f gg h
I'm wondering if it's possible to paste a rectangle / visual block selection on a group of lines by itself, as if it were an ordinary visual selection.
