This question already has an answer here:

my mapping is

.vimrc inoremap <C-h> <left> inoremap <c-l> <right> inoremap <c-j> <up> inoremap <c-k> <down>

But, if I press ctrl+h in insert mode, vim will delete character on the left of cursor, which function is same as backspace.

  • Yes, traditionally the backspace key sends Ctrl-h so this explains it – Christian Brabandt Aug 29 '18 at 6:03
