In Linux vim and gvim, I can make a visual selection by pressing
v VISUAL or
V VISUAL LINE), releasing it, and using movement keys (e.g., arrows) to highlight the desired text.
In Windows gvim, however, I must hold down
Shift while I make my selection. Also,
V (block) selection is supplanted by the Windows paste, and I can select text without
v at all, like the common Windows method of
Shift+arrow keys. I don't want any of this in my vim.
This is a minor annoyance at best, but there's probably a way to make Windows use the former (Linux) behavior of only pressing
V once. I've scoured the docs to no avail. How can I dispense with all of this Windows stuff and get consistent behavior between my Windows and Linux environments?
