The kitty terminal emulator uses the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + R for window resizing. The shortcut is also used by bash for reversing the reverse-i-search direction.
First I tried to to remove the kitty shortcut by mapping it to no_op using
map ctrl+shift+r no_op
But then Ctrl + Shift + R inserts
4;6u instead of the shortcut being passed to the shell like it does in other terminals.
As second option I tried mapping the shortcut to discard_event using
map ctrl+shift+r discard_event
But then Ctrl + Shift + R behaves like no key was pressed at all.
- Press Ctrl + R
- Enter a term that appears multiple times in your bash history
- Press Ctrl + R again to get to the next match
- Press Ctrl + Shift + R to get to the previous match (this step fails in kitty)
