I've been using vim for the last couple of years (ever since I started using Linux) and I just today downloaded GVim for windows. Man I'm loving it! Now I get all my vim goodness in windows too.

But I've always had a problem that I've just worked around forever since I could never figure out how to do it. I thought I'd finally get around to asking about it ...

How do you turn on the ability to delete back into a previous line? That is something that has always just "worked" in any other editor I've used, but Vim for some reason stops you at the beginning of a line.

Anyone know what I'm talking about and maybe even have a fix for me?
