Enable key repeat in Apple Lion for Sublime Text in Vim mode
# Mac OS X Lion introduced a new, iOS-like context menu when you press and hold a key # that enables you to choose a character from a menu of options. If you are on Lion # try it by pressing and holding down 'e' in any app that uses the default NSTextField # for input. # # It's a nice feature and continues the blending of Mac OS X and iOS features. However, # it's a nightmare to deal with in Sublime Text if you're running Vintage (Vim) mode, # as it means you cannot press and hold h/j/k/l to move through your file. You have # to repeatedly press the keys to navigate. # You can disable this feature for just Sublime Text by issuing the following command # in your terminal (*not* the Sublime Text console): defaults write com.sublimetext.3 ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false # Note: replace com.sublimetext.3 with whichever version of Sublime Text you are running # eg. 'com.sublimetext.2' # Alternately, if you want this feature disabled globally, you can enter this: defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false # In either case you'll need to restart Sublime Text for the change to take place. # Happy coding!
