Suppose caret is on the line 10 and I've recorded macros @d.

I need to replay macros until line 25. If I know that macros move caret one line per execution, I can calculate that it should be executed 25 - 10 = 15 times.

So the command will be 15@d.

But is it possible to use something like 'until line':


1 Answer 1


I think you can use this for specific line

:10,15 norm! @d

If you want something like until line, you can use this instead

:.,15 norm! @d

Or a more visual way, by selecting the lines you want to change via Visual mode and then execute the command

:norm! @d


You can also use 15: from normal mode to execute the macro for the next 15 lines

15: norm! @d

Thanks for @dedowsdi for the tip :D


:h range

:h normal

    You can omit norm!, you can also use 15: from normal mode to do it quickly.

    @dedowsdi im not aware that you can omit norm! here—macro replay is a normal command...
