Is there any difference between the behaviour of C-p and k? The seam to be doing the same thing; moving down a line


By default in normal mode they do the same thing. But, say, in Insert mode they don't.

This is pretty normal situation when different keys are bound to the same action. If in doubt, read the help system: :h ctrl-p

  • @user2741831 it does for me. You may have a mapping plugin interfering (I tried with vanilla vim). – Biggybi May 4 '20 at 23:24
