Somehow, over the last few days, the visual mode in Vim no longer flips the background highlight, as it used to. Now, if the file is recognized by something it can syntax highlight, it seems to unbold and darken colored text. But, for non-syntax highlighted text, or files it doesn't know the syntax of, there is no highlighting at all. Visual mode still selects normally for selections, but there's not visual difference over a selected area for non-syntax highlighted text.
How can I clear/correct/reset the visual mode selection highlighting?
- Vim 7.4
- Vundle for plugins
- I've tried removing and disabling any new plugins, no effect
vim -u NONEseems to restore it to what I would expect
- Turning on
set :hlsearchproperly enables search highlighting as usual
