At some point, the maintainers of
vim (an enhanced version of
vi, a basic editor in most *nix based machines) decided that it would be a good idea to have a
visual mode which changes the interaction with vim when there is a mouse selection. This made copy+pasting horrible, but the solution is super simple.
- Create the file ~/.vimrc
- Insert in it
In one line:
echo "set mouse-=a" >> ~/.vimrc
Thanks to this gist for the solution!
