Been to trying to figure out why pasting an emoji from the clipboard doesn't paste properly when using + v on macOS.

I have the following key bindings in my .vimrc

vnoremap <M-c> "+y
nnoremap <M-v> "+p
inoremap <M-v> <esc>"+p

Is there any way to get a list of escape sequences so I can hopefully get the proper emoji to paste.

It was totally an issue with iTerm2 and not mapping + v to ^[v within the iTerm2 settings.

  • how did you solve it?
