Its mappings may be in conflict with IndexedSearch. --July 19, 2012


After playing with this script for a few hours, I still failed to figure out how to use it for two important scenario:

1, Suppose I am edit a big file, and I want to search for a pattern using <Leader>r, after I input the regular expression and press Return, I don't know if there is any match since the cursor does not jump to the first match. I have to return to the old Vim search way.

2, Suppose I have a few patterns highlighted, for example, 'foo', 'bar' and 'qaz'. Now I just searched for 'qaz' and it is in the screen, now if I want to jump to the occurrence of 'bar', I don't know what to do other than randomly srolling the screen up and down for that pattern. I don't know if this script has a search command which accepts a marker number [N].

Hopefully I am clear for my question.
