I was wandering that sometimes I'd like CTRL-E and CTRL-Y to work even while I'm in insert mode. Before setting up any mapping I thought I should see if I'm shadowing some important functionality, so I searched for
:h i_CTRL-E and discovered these two functionalities of CTRL-E and CTRL-Y in insert mode. I didn't know of them, nor I can think of how they could come useful to me.
Experimenting with them, I've noticed that CTRL-E is interrupted by the appearence of the pop up menu (which for comes up with YCM), but CTRL-Y isn't.
So I was wandering,
- Is the fact that the pom prevents CTRL-E from working something avoidable?
- Why this asymmetry between CTRL-E and CTRL-Y, the former being interrupted by pom and not the latter?
- (Offtopic) Is anybody using those two insert mode commands?
