I really can't find the answer to this and I would like to understand what going on behind the scenes to make this happen. Is it a setting I have switched on? If so, which one?
To give an example, I needed to create a file containing several lines of just spaces, but each time I pressed enter at the end of the line, instead of the cursor going to the beginning of the next line, it just went down directly under its current position.
This wasn't a
vim task, I'm just trying to use the editor as much as possible for practice .
