Hi & Welcome to LQ.

Try using vim it works much better.
Code:
vim (name of file)
If your not sure how to use vim run this command in the terminal and do the exercises.
Code:
vimtutor

What distro are you running?
Different distros link 'vi' to various clones of the vi text editor, it could be vi, vim, nvi, or elvis.
