I'm currently using vim on VSCode (with the vscodevim extension). When VSCode serves me some autocomplete options, I always have to use the arrow keys and , which are a bit of a stretch.

Is there a way to cycle through the autocomplete options without having to stretch to the arrow keys?

    Note that the solution you shared is also the built-in behavior for "real" (n)vim editors.

Yes, there is:

  • Ctrl+p to move up.
  • Ctrl+n to move down.

Furthermore, these keybindings are not special to vscodevim, but are standard to most vim editors.
