I recently upgraded to Debian 9 Stretch. It includes VIM 8.
Previously, I could select text with the mouse and copy and paste it using the terminal application. Now this initiates "visual" mode which I have read the documentation for.
Using the mouse, it selects text using VIM instead of the terminal, and I cannot copy it.
I can't see any way of disengaging this, except recompiling with visual mode disabled.
There must be a way, right?
