After using Vim as my primary editor for a while,
I find myself trying to use vi-style keyboard shortcuts in
other contexts. Usually resulting in
:w in middle of
whatever I was writing as saving is a natural thing to do when pausing.
There's a few ways to fix this:
- Get used to the fact that not everything supports vi-style keyboard shortcuts.
- Change the keyboard shortcuts of the programs I do use.
- Use Vim for everything.
The first option is suboptimal because vi-style keyboard shortcuts are very useful. Luckily, in many cases there's ways to get them.
