Get Better At Yanking And Putting In Vim
a couple of nifty tricks to help you copy-paste better:
reselecting previously selected text (i use this to fix botched selections):
gv " :h gv for more " you can use `o` in visual mode to go to the `Other` end of the selection " use a motion to fix the selection
reselecting previously yanked text:
`[v`] `[ " marks the beginning of the previously yanked text :h `[ `] " marks the end :h `] v " visual select everything in between nnoremap gb `[v`] " "a quick map to perform the above
pasting and indenting text (in one go):
]p " put (p) and adjust indent to current line ]P " put the text before the cursor (P) and adjust indent to current line
