Using VsVim, Ctrl-H should be backspacing characters while in insert mode. However, this doesn't work while Visual Assist is enabled.

I don't know of any Visual Assist hotkeys using Ctrl-H, and I'm certain I have nothing bound to Ctrl-H. 3 of my other colleagues with fresh installs have the same issue - resolved by disabling Visual Assist.

Ah sorry, I should have thought of that. Thank you for your help!

I had to go into the VsVim options and make sure it was set to handle CTRL-H its self, now done.

Just to be sure, I tried disabling all VA options, but CTRL-H still does not work when VA is installed and enabled. I have added this to our bug report for VsVim compatibility:

That's a shame, thanks for trying.

Ahh good idea, was hyped for that to work! But I installed 2.9.471, still seeing same issue :( still only working with VA disabled.

I also have an open issue in VsVim's github here, just in case it's a VsVim problem after all: https://github.com/VsVim/VsVim/issues/2779
Will update that issue with this information too, thanks!

Note: I don't use VsVim

VsVim appears to be hosted at two different places:

One is reported as version 2.8 and the other is 2.9.471

2.8 is known to have errors in code that checks for the presence of VA.
2.9.471 probably has the fixes.

As an additional test, I also tried unbinding Ctrl-Shift-H. Still no luck!

Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019, Version 16.4.5
Visual Assist 10.9.2358.0

I might have needed to unbind Ctrl-H through VS Keyboard options, but my Ctrl-H doesn't open a replace dialog.

I checked the menu option as you suggested, neither Quick Find or Quick Replace have a bound hotkey for me - just Ctrl-Shift-F and Ctrl-Shift-H for the non-quick variants.

Disabling VA makes Ctrl-H work as expected, I can enable/disable multiple times to reproduce/fix the issue. If I start editing a text file quick enough, Ctrl-H will typically work once before the VA-syntax highlighting kicks in.

Which IDE and version of VA are you using? If you disable VA, is CTRL-H working as expected?

Testing VS2019 here, VA not installed at all, CTRL-H is bringing up the IDE quick find and replace dialog, and looking in the menus, it is mapped to:

Edit menu -> Find and Replace -> Quick Replace

by default. Even after installing VsVim, it is still bringing up the IDE quick find and replace dialog, when in Insert mode.
