When I try to use vim's INSERT mode and want to navigate the cursor with the editor yields
^B instead moving the cursor back. Can anybody tell me what I have to rebind to make this work again. Also for .
<C-F> commands only work in normal mode. In insert mode, the literal control characters (rendered as
^F) get inserted.
You can define mappings that enable scrolling in insert mode:
inoremap <C-b> <C-\><C-o><C-b> inoremap <C-f> <C-\><C-o><C-f>
<C-\><C-o> executes a single normal mode command from insert mode.
Alternatively (at least in GVIM),
<PageDown> also work in insert mode out of the box.
