[HDGEM] How to cut-and-paste or copy-and-paste in Vim

  • Position the cursor at the beginning of the text you want to cut/copy.
  • Press v to begin character-based visual selection, or V to select whole lines, or Ctrl-v or Ctrl-q to select a block.
  • Move the cursor to the end of the text to be cut/copied. While selecting text, you can perform searches and other advanced movement.
  • Press d (delete) to cut, or y (yank) to copy.
  • Move the cursor to the desired paste location.
  • Press p to paste after the cursor, or P to paste before.

Visual selection (steps 1-3) can be performed using a mouse.

If you want to change the selected text, press c instead of d or y in step 4. In a visual selection, pressing c performs a change by deleting the selected text and entering insert mode so you can type the new text.
