The same procedure works on my VIM 7.4 patch 1-1572 but not on my VIM 7.4 patch 1-1718, is there anything changed in between that affects this?


$ vim -u /dev/null some-file

Then in vim

:set nocompatible
:vmap <C-F6> "+y

Then type some text, press v to enter visual mode, select the text, then press Ctrl-F6. Then in normal mode, press "+gP. In earlier version, copy-paste are successful but in newer version nothing happens. Any thoughts? Is it my vmap incorrect, if yes, what would it be to achieve the same effect?

    It works correctly for me. 7.4 is up to patchlevel 1795, so it's entirely possible this problem has been fixed in a more recent patch. If possible try updating and test again. – Heptite Apr 28 '16 at 3:26

    Otherwise, it's best to send an email to vim_dev mailing list. – Luc Hermitte Apr 28 '16 at 11:03
