In my init.lua, I've got some keys bound to some actions in insert mode.


vim.keymap.set('i', '<C-j>', '<Plug>(easymotion-bd-w)')

But when I press Ctrl-ew, instead of highlighting words to jump to, <Plug>(easymotion-bd-w) is actually written in the buffer.

If it matters, I'm using kickstart.nvim.

Here's a screenshot that illustrates the problem:

I would try:

vim.keymap.set('i', '<C-j>', '<Plug>(easymotion-bd-w)', { remap = true} )
