Running Fedora23 KDE spin. KDE Plasma 5.5.5. Qt 5.6.0. Konsole 15.12.3. zsh 5.1.1. vimx 7.4.

Have installed pathogen and SpeedDating using pathogen.

When I do Ctrl-A, Ctrl-X on a date field, nothing happens.

:map shows both Ctrl-A and Ctrl-X as mappings.

What must be going wrong? How do I set it right?

OK. I am answering it so that others who make the same mistake can correct it.

If the format you are trying to Ctrl-A Ctrl-X on is not defined in :SpeedDatingFormat it will not work.

Otherwise it should.

In my case, there was a small error in the format.

  • This is exactly why you should have shown your string with that format in your question otherwise that's not a valid question. It can't be answered since we can't point out said mistake. May 27, 2020 at 1:04
