[vim] Inserting at beginning of line or at target in Visual Block mode doesn't work

Insertion in Visual Block Mode

I’m having problems inserting text over multiple lines in Visual Block mode


  • Platform: Ubuntu
  • Platform version: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS (bionic)
  • App Version: (4.2.0)
  • Package (inkdrop-vim): 1.0.1


To reproduce:

  • Create multiple lines of text
  • <ctrl> + v to enter linewise-visual-mode
  • j j to move down over multiple lines
  • <shift> + i to insert (either at the beginning of line or ‘at target’)

The cursor moves to lines that aren’t in the selection.

Additionally, <shift> + i in visual mode doesn’t not allow insertion

Additional (Suggestion):

  • If I understand correctly, the inkdrop package is based on the Atom vim-mode package. It would be really nice if the inkdrop package was migrated to be based on the updated, feature-rich Atom-vim-mode-plus package instead.

Hi Vikram,

Thank you for the report. Fixed!
Try vim@1.0.2 by ipm update.
atom-vim-mode-plus is basically not compatible with Inkdrop’s editor as it’s based on CodeMirror.
