# Backspace key not working in vim

backspacevim

I am using vim under Terminal.app and just a few days ago the backspace key stopped working. Whenever I am in insert mode, the backspace key does nothing.

However, when I am in normal mode, the backspace key moves the cursor back a character. In visual mode, the backspace key deletes selected text.

Is there any way to get the backspace key working in insert mode again?

set bs=indent,eol,start     " Backspace over everything in insert mode
