in reply to Editing features for advanced users

I like vim and use it a lot along with emacs. The one feature I like the most is the regexp search-and-replace thingy. I have only two gripes so far:
  1. Having to switch insert mode on and off is a hassle. But I can live with that.
  2. Starting the GUI version of vim (gvim) from a launcher (like gnome) produc different results than starting gvim from the command line. It seems like different config files are read, since the color schemes and some menus are different. I've noticed this behaviour under both linux and NT but so far I've failed to find an explanation in the docs. Anyone?

    Do :version to check which vimrc files get sourced. That should give you a hint of what's going on.
