Re: backspace mode and control-u

first, in insert mode, control-u seems to do nothing. is there a setting to allow this?

second, is there an equivalent to vim's :set backspace=indent ?

id even be happy with :set backspace=

right now it seems default to :set backspace=start,indent,eol

what control-U does changes based on the :set backspace setting

i normally run with :set backspace=indent, and control-u will delete to start of line, or start of insert mode, whichever is closer.


Re: backspace mode and control-u

Hi Nirva,

Ctrl-U works for me, both in VS.NET 2003 and VS2005. ViEmu/VS 2.1.10. Any more context? Such as: VS version, language you are using, any 3rd party tools...

I didn't know Ctrl-U varied depending on :set backspace. I implemented what I saw vim doing, and I've checked and I have the setting you mention (:set backspace=start,indent,eol). So yes, Ctrl-U erases first to the start of insert, and then it does so by lines.

I'll note the feature request for a future version.
