Vim is Stuck!

April 4, 2018

This post lists Control-q which may un-stuck Vim. It also lists some history about the problem.

 

Try Control + q

 

If this worked, you pressed Control + s in a terminal emulator like GNOME Terminal. 

 

In a terminal Control + s stops terminal output. Control + q restarts it.
