Weird Keyboard Behaviors

  • Hello, I am having a lot of trouble with something that seems really simple. Qt Creator is acting really weird in the editor, and I cannot get it to act normal...

    I believe it has something to do with this "-- COMMAND --" at the bottom of Qt Creator.


    Also, if I click 'c' 2 times, then it changes to "-- INSERT --" and later back to "-- COMMAND --" (not sure what changes it back).

    I could appreciate any help, thank you in advanced.

    You ended up in FakeVim mode where Creator behaves like an ancient text editor found on unix.

    To quit the FakeVim mode, unselect Tools > Options > FakeVim > Use FakeVim or press Alt+V,Alt+V.

    You can disable the fakevim plugin in Help > About Plugins to make sure you never end up in it again.
