Let's say I'd like to indent the current line 4 times. (Not 4 spaces, 4 indent commands). As far as I can tell, the shortest way to do this is
(Indent once, repeat three times) This seems really inefficient to me. I'd rather do something like this:
But instead of repeatedly indenting the current line, this indents the next 4 lines 1 time. In my mind, this is a total waste, because if the count before the operator was "indent level", and the count after is for a repeated motion, this doesn't lose any ability. If I wanted to indent the next four lines one time, I could just do
If the first count were to work this way, you could even do a command like this:
And this would mean "Two times, indent the following four lines". Instead it means "One time, indent eight lines".
Can I configure vim to behave this way?
