      In insert mode, you have to press CTRL-R followed by CTRL-O
      followed by the register name. In this case, as you are trying
      to paste the contents of the clipboard, the name of the register
      is '*' (start). This command will insert the contents of the specified
      register without any indentation.

      If you are using a Vim that is compiled with the support for the
      xterm clipboard and mouse support and you have set the 'mouse'
      option to let Vim handle the mouse, then when you paste with
      the middle mouse button, the text will be pasted without any

      The help text refers to the behavior when Vim is able to access
      the xterm clipboard and is handling the mouse click.

      You are using a Vim compiled without the support for accessing
      the xterm clipboard (-xterm_clipboard). In this version, you cannot
      use the above described command to paste the clipboard
