In my experience, delimitMate *does* break undo/redo/repeat, unlike it says on this page. Topdownjimmy (talk) 17:27, December 2, 2013 (UTC)


That's because Vim 7.4 broke the hacky workaround all such plugins use to avoid breaking undo/redo, without providing an alternative. If you know of a plugin that somehow keeps undo/redo working, please let us know. I'll add a note to the tip. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 20:56, December 2, 2013 (UTC)


This is the case for me with Vim 7.2, however. 18.198.6.133 17:34, December 3, 2013 (UTC)


That's odd. delimitMate is one I chose for my own use specifically BECAUSE it supported undo/redo/repeat. It even makes the claim right on its vim.org project page, script#2754. Maybe it depends on another plugin like repeat.vim for this feature? I don't see any mention of such a dependency in the docs, and I've uninstalled it recently since it broke so badly in Vim 7.4. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 18:23, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
