Topic: VS 2019 <Esc> does not exit insert mode in HTML files - causes error

Hi Jon - sorry, I know escape handling is your favorite topic.  smile

I've been seeing this error ever since I moved to VS2019 (16.8.4).

I'm on version 3.11 of viemu.

Escape does not work to leave insert mode in html files and causes the following error(s) in VS. FYI, I don't have any of the typical extensions that affect this sort of thing (resharper, intellisense extensions, etc). Just naked VS.

Esc works fine in all other file types that I've tried.

By the way, I've noticed that it works correctly if you have any text selected. At that point, the 'SelectionCancel' behavior seems to kick in and it works.

I've tried mapping something to '<S-Up> <esc', but the Shift-up (to select some text) doesn't work.

Thanks!

Anyone else seeing this and maybe have a workaround?

I've tried to remove anything that might be affecting this, but you never know. Be helpful to know if others are seeing this as well.
