To autocomplete using tags, I saw the combination <CTRL-]> in vim help :help ins-completion.

However, for some reason it does not work. I don't know how but I figured out that hitting <CTRL-$> does this tags autocompletion.

Knowing that this is what I run for vim

  1. ctags -R .
  2. vim --no-plugin -u NONE
  3. :syntax enabled
  4. :filetype plugin on
  5. :set path+=**
  6. :set wildmenu

Is it due to my azerty macos keyboard?

  • Yes, looks like on Azerty Ctrl+$ will generate that combination: superuser.com/q/377739/879179 That question also mentions Ctrl+AltGr+[. In Insert mode, you can type Ctrl+V followed by another sequence (like Ctrl+$) to see what it generates...
