Description julee 2013-09-30 16:03:16 UTC
1. When switching from insert mode to visual mode by selecting text with mouse, I can single click anywhere to go back to insert mode with vi/vim. But with kate vi input mode, it goes back to normal mode. So everytime I have put down the mouse and press "i" to go back to insert mode.

2. In visual mode, select text  in visual mode with mouse,  the last word with background highlight seems not selected. This make me confuse when try to copy text by this.

Reproducible: Always

Hi julee, thanks for report! I can confirm the first one (tested against gvim). The fix should be easy, though.

If the second one is still an issue, can you please post detailed description? Some text example or screenshot perhaps?
