When typing Ex commands such as
:wq, or find and replace, the colon isnt shown on screen until a subsequent key is pressed. This is annoying because it makes me think i haven’t pressed the colon key.
In vim, this works as expected. I have colon and semi-colon mapped to each other (swapped).
Any ideas why the colon isnt shown on screen until something else is typed? Perhaps neovim is waiting to see if i type some other shortcut that begins with colon, but i haven’t defined any shortcuts like this.
