  • You can tell Vim which number formats CTRL-A and CTRL-X will act on with the 'nrformats' option. Format alphabetic lists with :set nrformats+=alpha or ignore octal format and just use decimal with :set nrformats-=octal. :help 'nrformats'


I'm having trouble finding where to post help for Vim? Vim is showing blurry red text. I'm not sure if the issue is caused by Ubuntu, Vim or a Plugin. My computer: Kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: N/A Distro: Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca

Vim: VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4 (2013 Aug 10, compiled Jan 2 2014 19:39:32) Included patches: 1-52

Plugin: vim-colors-solarized, suspected.

I have commented out vim-colors-solarized, but the red blurry text remains?

Try contacting the solarized author at his github page or at the email address listed there. Or try the vim_use mailing list. This wiki is not a good place to get help; it is a self-help resource, not a help forum; very few people will see your message here. Slightly more information and suggestions on our Community Portal. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 14:46, October 5, 2015 (UTC)
