I recently set up the
visual-regexp-steroids package to try it out. The one major sticking point so far has been that when I terminate the search by typing a cursor motion command (typically
C-a), the cursor is just left where it is; I have to type the command a second time to make it work.
Looking at the source for both
visual-regexp-steroids, I don't find any configurable option for this behavior. I also don't find any relevant issues filed against either package's Github page.
Is there any way to get the usual Emacs exit-search behavior when using
Here's what I tried just now:
~/.emacs, started Emacs, and opened a file. I evaluated
(require 'package) and
(require 'visual-regexp-steroids), then typed M-x
vr/isearch-forward and typed some keys that matched some text present in the file. Then when I pressed M-<, the search stopped, but the cursor was left at the end of the matching text.
