I'm having an issue where text yanked to
unnamed is not available to paste afterwards. This only occurs when I am SSHd in to another machine. Both machines are running identical versions of OS X (10.9.2), Vim (7.4, compiled with
brew install vim --override-system-vim) and the output is the same on both machines:
vim --version | head -n 2
=> VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4 (2013 Aug 10, compiled Mar 12 2014 13:11:40)
=> MacOS X (unix) version
In a document, when I yank text and then immediately attempt to paste it, I see
E353: Nothing in register *. I have also tried
"*y and receive the same error. When I enter insert mode and
cmd-v, it pastes the last thing I copied outside of vim. I tried
"+p but receive the same error (referencing
*) which I believe is expected, and
cmd-v still does not paste what I want.
How do I get vim clipboards to work properly when I am SSHd across machines?
