Macro recording defect on Mac
« on: December 01, 2012, 05:49:28 am »
I'm having lots of problems using macro recording with vim emulation on Mac.  It just doesn't work very well.  Here is an example:

If you have the two lines of code:

    const wxString& getValue() const;
    const wxString& getValue() const;

Position the cursor on the first line of code above.  Do the following in vim mode:
  • Start a macro recording Ctrl-F11
  • Press 0 to go to beginning of line
  • Press the following vim key sequence wdt&xxrs3lyw0j
  • Stop macro recording Ctrl-F11
  • Position cursor on the second line, play macro Ctrl-F12
You get something different from what was recorded, here is what I get:

lst wxString& setValue() const;

It doesn't play back correctly  ???

Here is my program information:
