The correct way to switch off highlighting in vim is to use the command :


This is a temporary measure until you use the search function again.

More info is available at :


There should be a way to add this to the vim startup file as an option 
and associate it with a "hot key" --- e.g. use the F12 if vim has no 
other function for the F12 key.

try :

	edit ~/.vimrc

and enter on a new line :

	:map <F12> :nohlsearch

More info at :


look under "key mapping"
