On my Mac, I put the following in my
.vimrc to use
ii as the key. Note, I include the
: in the .vimrc file, i'm not sure if you're supposed to but it still works :)
:imap ii <Esc>
I'm now trying to setup Vim on my iPad (see http://applidium.com/en/applications/vim/). Since there's no Esc on the iPad, the developers who ported Vim mapped the Esc key to \, however \ is very inconvenient if you're using the native iPad keyboard (rather than the bluetooth), so I'm trying to remap it again in the .vimrc that I've imported into the iPad via iTunes.
I put this in the .vimrc, thinking I should remap the remap
`:imap ii \`
but it always types two i rather then enter command mode.
What should I put in the
.vimrc to make the Vim enter command mode on the iPad by pressing
ii. I'm not sure if something special has to be done to remap a remap.
.vimrc file where
ii mapping still prints
ii rather than escaping
