If you want to map Ctrl-V as Ctrl-Q, you can add the following line in your
It works in gvim, but it wouldn’t work in terminal-vim. Why? I’d been confused about it for a long time until I saw this:
If you want to make
<c-q>work in your terminal vim, you need to understand the default
<C-q>has special meaning in your terminal settings.
In your terminal, pressing
stty startsignal. This is important when you first
stopyour terminal output scrolling(by
ctrl-s), and then you want to resume. That is, in terminal vim, if you pressed
C-q, it will be captured first by terminal. You can of course change that rule, by disable the
stty startdefinition. like:
stty start undef
you could add this to your
.bashrcfile (I assume you were using bash) if you want to make it as default.
with this line executed, you can create the same mapping
nnoremap <c-q> <c-v>in your vim, and pressing
<c-q>in normal mode, vim is gonna enter block-wise selection mode.
After all, again, I suggest you forget the windows mapping if you work on linux box.
In short, add the following line in your
.bashrc file, and the map will work after that.
