I am tryng to use https://github.com/terryma/vim-multiple-cursors,

" Default mapping
let g:multi_cursor_start_word_key      = '<C-n>'
let g:multi_cursor_select_all_word_key = '<A-n>'
let g:multi_cursor_start_key           = 'g<C-n>'
let g:multi_cursor_select_all_key      = 'g<A-n>'
let g:multi_cursor_next_key            = '<C-n>'
let g:multi_cursor_prev_key            = '<C-p>'
let g:multi_cursor_skip_key            = '<C-x>'
let g:multi_cursor_quit_key            = '<Esc>'

What does each of these mean? I presses Ctrl + n, and nothing gets selected. What am I missing?

  • The start key is g<c-n>, maybe start there? – D. Ben Knoble Apr 23 '20 at 12:20

    Im just reading the code you posted—start key = 'g<C-n>'—press g and then control-n. And maybe read the plugins docs. – D. Ben Knoble Apr 23 '20 at 16:15
  • @D.BenKnoble github.com/amix/vimrc, so totally new to vim config, how do i use the multi cursor fn? – user2167584 Apr 24 '20 at 2:58
  • Yeah, i wouldnt go using someone else’s vim configuration if you’re new to vim configuration—you can learn by reading them, but you’ve got to understand them – D. Ben Knoble Apr 24 '20 at 14:01
