Thanks for the respect, but Louis is fine. I'm no Dr. of programming, but just a struggling amateur. In this field you are the Dr. You are the pro. I'm confused about insert mode. If I type i to enter insert mode, then type "+p it just types in those three characters, as I would assume it should. What am I missing here? Also, could the vimrc file be causing my paste problem? If so, what do I look for to correct it?

Yes, this increased productivity is what I'm hoping for.

May I please get a copy?

Except for the paste problem, there is only one thing about vim I have found so far that I don't like: when long lines are wrapped vim skips the wrapped part of the line completely when pressing j or k, and goes to the next line. Is it possible to change this? Thanks, Louis
