Some Vi(m) tricks


So, it’s become apparent to me recently that I need to keep my Vim tricks and tips in a central location. I would love feed back on suggestions or other pro tips, I’ll post them here.

changing font colors – enter command mode, do shift+:, type colorscheme (you can tab to it), then the color you want. I like elflord personally.

prepend characters to multiple lines – place the cursor on the first line, do shift+v, do shift+i, then type what you want to prepend and hit esc
