This question already has an answer here:
I've read that in insert mode in
vim, one can use
<C-Right> to move by words. This works for me, but only as far as I don't run
tmux terminal splitter.
<C-Left> instead throws me out of the insert mode and gives an error:
E388: Couldn't find definition
This error is explained in the help to have something to do with definition searching. However, I don't want any definition to be searched for, I want just to move one word to the left. As well,
<C-Right> does nothing more than throwing me out of the insert mode, not what I would like.
Reading somewhere that this might be connected to
set (no)esckeys, I tried it with both settings of this flag, with the very same result. As well, I have seen the answers in How to get shift+arrows and ctrl+arrows working in Vim in tmux? but they don't appear to help me.
