Why do I have such a hard time yanking to a specific buffer…
I’m writing this to have some notes to go back to.
To yank (copy) to a specific buffer, do the following:
- Press ESC to get to command mode
- Press v to get a visual view of the selected text, move around as per usual to mark more lines, word, paragraphs, etc
- Press “a to choose buffer a to hold the yanked text (That’s double quote, followed by an a. Replace a with b to yank to buffer b, etc…)
