I often press:
<Ctrl> Vto go into visual block mode and highlight a column
<shift>-i(to insert at the beginning of the line), type a few things (at this point, I see my changes on the first line, but not any others).
- and then hit
<Esc>to go back to normal mode.
After I hit
<Esc>, I see the stuff I inserted get put in each of the other lines.
What I would like is to visually see my changes on each line, as I type, rather than only on the first line. Is that possible?
I know that I could have done what I did in this example with
>>. I chose a simplified example to illustrate the thing I'd like to change.
