I like this behavior enough to keep the <tt>o</tt> option, however at times I want to ''not'' insert the comment chars, and although manually deleting the added chars is not hard I present these simple mappings that delete the added chars automatically.

This is relevant when your 'formatoptions' includes o.

From :help fo-table, "Automatically insert the current comment leader after hitting 'o' or 'O' in Normal mode."

I like this behavior enough to keep the o option, however at times I want to not insert the comment chars, and although manually deleting the added chars is not hard I present these simple mappings that delete the added chars automatically.

nnoremap go o<Esc>S
nnoremap gO O<Esc>S

This makes go open a new line under the cursor and removes inserted chars, while gO opens a new line above the cursor and removes inserted chars.

CommentsEdit

It should be noted that the go mapping presented above will interfere with Vim's default go (Go to {count} byte in the buffer :help go) command.

There should be a much more elegant way of achieving the same effect, but I am currently unaware of what it might be.


I look everywhere for a solution to this problem. My work around is to use Ctrl-W (insert mode) to delete the previous word.

A side note. I find it useful to use Ctrl-Backspace instead of Ctrl-W.
