I often find myself using the following no matter what the program is:
tto open a new tab
Shiftz to redo
That how it works in most computers, regardless of what mode I'm in or whatever. What would be a good keyboard mapping I can use in
vim to do something similar? I don't believe
cmd is supposed (without doing some odd mapping).
I also am not a big fan of using
ctrl as I often use that in other programs to advance to the start of a line
a or advance to the end of the line
e, and I'm already familiar with
v for visual mode.
What might be a good mapping where I can do something that might feel close to doing the
letter input, i.e. and it will work across all modes (that is, I should be able to select-all whether I'm in normal mode or insert mode)? Additionally, if useful, I'm using vim on mac and (mainly) ubuntu.
