I use a few plugins that rely heavily on the <Leader> key in vim. I'm
used to using the console-based version of vim on Linux, where the leader
is is "\". However, this doesn't appear to work from within Cream on
What's the <Leader> key in Cream on Windows?
Thanks, and keep up the good work!

Cream does not define a leader since all commands are key combinations
of Ctrl, Alt, Shift, and function keys. However, if you use Ctrl+O,
you will drop out of Insert Mode for a command in which you can use
the default (or your preferenced) leader. Use Ctrl+L to drop into
Normal Mode until you press Esc or otherwise re-enter Insert Mode.
Also, beware of plugins that rely on <Esc>, since with Cream's use of
the &insertmode option Vim will not return to normal mode as most Vim
plugin writers expect. A few errant keys following by the plugin and
half the document in yours or a nearby cubical will disappear. :)
