Im trying to increase my efficiency at moving between buffers, and the Ctrl-w-(hjkl) movement doesn't work for me. How can I remap Ctrl-(hjkl) to the Ctrl-w version? I have already tried:

inoremap <C-j> <C-wj>

but that doesnt work.


You almost had it. Try:

noremap <C-h> <C-w>h
noremap <C-j> <C-w>j
noremap <C-k> <C-w>k
noremap <C-l> <C-w>l

You can also add the inoremap if you want it to work from insert mode.

  • It worked, although I had to move it to the top of my .vimrc. Thanks for the quick reply!
