nnoremap <C-]> :bn<Enter> nnoremap <C-[> :bp<Enter>
so that I can use
] to flip between buffers. I'm experiencing an issue where these two shortcuts behave differently
Ctrl+]instantly switches to the next buffer (good).
Ctrl+[hangs for about half a second before switching to the previous buffer (bad).
Curiously, using the command
:bp directly (i.e. without the
Ctrl+[ remap) still instantly switches to the previous buffer as it should. Its only when invoking it with the
Ctrl-[ remap that the delay occurs. This is very strange and seems to be some property of
nnoremap that I don't understand.
Why would only one of these work instantly and how can I get the other one to work instantly?
