Three Minutes Daily Vim Tip: Paste without Strange Indentation Behavior

I may have encountered a strange behavior in vim when you try to paste some codes with system-generic method (i.e., Ctrl+V) rather than vim method (i.e., yy and p). Here is how to fix it:

:set paste

This option will let vim know that you will be pasting text, and vim is to paste the text as is, without trying to auto-indent. When you are done pasting, simply set

:set nopaste

Happy vimming!
