I have tried copying and pasting my coworker's tmux.conf config to mine and running tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf. It seems to have updated (I can tell because the colors have been updated)

He has a config where he can switch panes with option + hjkl. I can also do this.

However, when I'm in copy mode (option + u) and scrolling up and down, I am unable to switch panes with option + hjkl, but he can.

Is there something I'm missing? Here's the config:

set -g prefix C-e
unbind C-b
bind C-e send-prefix

# Window mappings
bind -n M-h select-pane -L
bind -n M-j select-pane -D
bind -n M-k select-pane -U
bind -n M-l select-pane -R

# Enable OSX clipboard copying
set-option -g default-command "reattach-to-user-namespace -l zsh"
set-window-option -g mode-keys vi
bind-key -T copy-mode-vi Enter send-keys -X copy-pipe-and-cancel 'reattach-to-user-namespace pbcopy'

bind r source-file ~/.tmux.conf

set-option -g renumber-windows on

# Navigate between windows
bind -n M-n next-window
bind -n M-p previous-window
bind -n M-c new-window -c '#{pane_current_path}'

# open split
bind -n M-\ split-window -h -c '#{pane_current_path}'
bind -n M-- split-window -v -c '#{pane_current_path}'

# open split with vim
unbind ^W
bind ^W split-window -p 25 -c '#{pane_current_path}' '/usr/bin/env vim .' \; swap-pane -D
#
# start new tab of pane in current directory
bind '"' split-window -c '#{pane_current_path}'
bind % split-window -h -c '#{pane_current_path}'
bind c new-window -c '#{pane_current_path}'

# resizing
bind-key -nr    M-Up resize-pane -U
bind-key -nr  M-Down resize-pane -D
bind-key -nr  M-Left resize-pane -L
bind-key -nr M-Right resize-pane -R

bind-key -n M-u copy-mode

unbind ^E
bind ^E select-pane -t :.+

Figured it out, added this:

# Switch panes while in copy mode
bind-key -T copy-mode-vi M-h select-pane -L
bind-key -T copy-mode-vi M-j select-pane -D
bind-key -T copy-mode-vi M-k select-pane -U
bind-key -T copy-mode-vi M-l select-pane -R
