stop indentation on current file in vim to keep the indentation from copied text.

2009-10-22 78 words 1 min read

I have been looking for this for quite some time. Finally found two easy ways to do it:

:setlocal noautoindent
:setlocal nocindent
:setlocal nosmartindent
:setlocal indentexpr=

Just use the above four commands when the file is already open to stop all the indentation/smart indentation/auto indentation in vim for the current file. If you want to map it then you can use shorthand notations and map it in the .vimrc file.


:map <F1> :setl noai nocin nosi inde=<CR>
