Description Dennis Gilmore 2016-10-06 16:28:00 UTC
Description of problem:

When using vim 8 if you select text it automatically turns on visual mode, you can copy the text to the vim buffers to paste into oter vim docs but you can ot get the text to the system clipboard using "+y

it also breaks the terminals ability to detect urls to open. 
either integration with the systems clipboard is needed or the default to visual mode needs to be turned off 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to copy text using "+y

Actual results:
nothing in teh system clipboard

Expected results:
copied text in the system clipboard

Additional info:

non visual mode was simpler for this use case, but visual mode is simpler for selecting text to copy within vim

I'll take a look

Regarding VIM enabling visual mode after right clicking.  I opened a ticket via github https://github.com/vim/vim/issues/1326  . Hopefully we can get a answer over there.  This was a slight problem for me until I found i could disable this by issuing :set mouse-=a  .. My ticket on github is more of a question if this is by design  or truly a bug. 

hope this helps . I know this bug ticket was open a few months back. So i figure i would post as this may help others.

Hi Dennis,

would you mind trying the newest vim version if problem is solved? I think this bug is duplicate of #1401410.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
