You're welcome. That's why I like modal editor like Vim. You can get the same thing done in many ways depending on the user.

Btw, on the side note, I never heard of Onivim2 before. - looks interesting 🤓. I've never heard of it before until you mentioned it. How did you find out about it and what do you think about it?

I was looking for a vim graphical program because my MacVim kept crashing. I came across Onivim, the original one, and loved it. But, it kept crashing also due to changes in neovim. I then started to just use neovim in the terminal all the time (that’s when I found kitty, a better terminal). But, I kept up with development of Onivim. When Onivim 2 started in public alpha, I jump right on it and have been loving it.

But, I’m an editor collector. I’ve used Emacs (in evil mode using the Doom config), Vi, Vim, Sublime Text, Atom (crashes a lot), Visual Code, skEdit, Syntra, CotEdit, Lite, and MacVim (the latest version isn’t crashing as much).
