comment Vim: Terminal-to-terminal copy&paste?
Shift+"insert"? do you mean the button "insert"?

It's open source, and I was instructed by the developer to copy it :)

Is it not appropriate to do so?

accepted In Vim, is there a way to TAB multiple adjacent lines at a time?

It's a shame that Python won't let you use *curly braces* to denote the start and end of a function or a block of code. The indentation rule just makes it confusing to debug files that are of at least a certain length!!

Nevermind, I was tricked! The problem is that working on *my* machine had settings so that pressing the TAB button would insert TWO tabs (8 spaces). THAT's what the problem was!

Hence that's why I suspect that command is just chopping up any tab that appears bigger. I originally left some comments when working on my own machine indicating that certain 6-length tabs were indeed only 1 tab :(

@sebastiangeiger - Thanks, I just tried that, since it was the simplest solution I've gotten so far - but it seems that what vim may be doing is chopping up the 6-length tabs into two (as denoted by the vertical markings :retab! has added; automatically adding in the vertical markings was part of my goal, so that is taken care of. The problem is that some lines where I was sure contained only one 6-length tab now shows up as containing TWO vertical marks)

But not every line has the same number of tabs... some may just have 1, but there are some that even have 6!
