I have a very simple and confusing problem. I enabled Vintage in Sublime and I also added "vintage_start_in_command_mode": true. However, every time I open a file, it starts me in insert mode. Any ideas?

make sure you add that to your "user" settings, not to the "default" settings. it worked for me on windows and osx installs of st2. i added that line to my user settings, then opened a new file and it started in command mode.
