- Changed the behavior of Shift-A to move to the end of paragraph (equiv. to the end of a long unbroken line in vi) instead of just the end of the screen line.
- Fixed (hopefully) the error 5346 that was caused by viWord trying to bind to an existing combo (Ctrl-R) used for “align paragraph to right indent” (who the hell uses that anyway?) viWord first removes that binding and then binds Ctrl-R to the Redo operation (just as VIM does).
xnow copies the character(s) onto the clipboard so you could use
xpto swap characters.
- viWord enters normal mode without you having to hit the emulate button or the ESC key when you first start Word.
