After I find some text using / on input field, I don't want change to insert mode when there is a match until I press c for caret mode. How can do that? Right now, press n for next match enters into insert mode and pressing esc and n repeatedly does not help either.

What is your question? I can not see a question mark. :-) What do you want to do? – erik Mar 11 '13 at 18:52
