I managed to record a macro pressing <leader>-q-r-<letter>, but I can't make it play. The documentations says

SpaceVim has mapped normal q as smart buffer close, the normal func of q can be get by <leader>qr

but says nothing about playing it. I tried <leader>-@-r-<letter> and @-r-<letter> but it didn't work. Could it be because I'm using a German keyboard and the '@' is <AltGr>@-q?

  • Does it work without SpaceVim? Commented Dec 18, 2017 at 6:53
  • Yes, it does work.

SpaceVim uses leaderqr instead of q because it remaps q to another function.

As far as I can tell from the documentation, @ is not used for another function: so you play back macros in the usual way: @letter

  • I can't reproduce the problem anymore. And I'm not 100% sure if that did the trick, but one thing I tried was changing the layout language to English and back to German.
