- If the text you wish to select is irregular, you can use Vim's visual mode:
- Press v when in normal mode.
- Move around using the standard Vi commands (but the arrow keys require holding shift when ":source mswin.vim").
- Once you have the text selected, press the operator you want to perform it on.
- vj$hhhy will copy all the text from the cursor to the next line excluding its last three characters.
