I've tried this

au BufWinEnter * if &l:buftype != 'nofile' | map <buffer> <CR> <Plug>(easymotion-prefix) | endif

but somehow this isn't working (easymotion isn't working). While this works

au BufWinEnter * map <buffer> <CR> <Plug>(easymotion-prefix)

I'm not sure, but I think that | endif is in the {rhs} of the mapping command :map. To remove it, you could wrap the mapping in a chain and execute it, maybe like this:

au BufWinEnter * if &l:buftype != 'nofile' | exe "map <buffer> \<CR> \<Plug>(easymotion-prefix)" | endif

Instead of toggling the global mapping, you could also define a (command-line window) buffer-local mapping for <CR> that restores the original functionality:

:autocmd CmdwinEnter * noremap <buffer> <CR> <CR>

This way, you can leave the plugin mapping alone, and do not need to duplicate its definition.

  • Yeah, I guess that makes sense. However this would work only in cmdwindow, what if there are other usecases where buftype is 'nofile', like coming from plugins... Jan 12 '17 at 9:07

    Plugin scratch buffers wouldn't profit from the default behavior of <CR>, so if they offer functionality on that key, they have already provided such buffer-local mapping which eclipses the global one [from easymotion]. The issue mainly is only with the command-line window, because of the special built-in behavior of <CR>. Jan 12 '17 at 9:13

    By any change do you know how to do the same for quickfix? au BufEnter * if &l:buftype != 'nofile' && &ft != 'quickfix' because this isnt' working for some reason. Jan 12 '17 at 19:04

    @user1685095: I would use :au FileType qf Jan 13 '17 at 7:48
