For those who use Vim plugin for IntelliJ-based products such as Intellij IDEA, Android Studio, may find an inconvenient way to copy and paste content from a clipboard to the IDE.
We usually use Ctrl+V for pasting a content from a clipboard to the IDE and Vim's also use this key for line selection visual mode. So we want to keep this Ctrl+V for visual mode command.
Vim configurations comes to help, you can define a setting that sharing between vim buffer and clipboard. This means that you can paste content from a clipboard to the IDE or paste content from Vim buffer to other programs.
Let create Vim configuration file.
- Create new file name for Linux and Mac ~/.ieadvimrc
for Windows _ideavimrc
Put this setting into the file.
- copy to user home directory
For example C:\Users\aaron
restart your IDE
Enjoy you Vim
