Command S on OSX using FakeVim deletes the current character instead of saving

  • When I have FakeVim turned on, Qt Creator interprets the Command S key in the following way: If there are unsaved changes, it saves the file. Otherwise, it deletes the current character and switches to INSERT mode. When FakeVim is turned off Command S just saves the file, with or without unsaved changes.

    I have checked Environment -> Keyboard and Command S looks like it is only bound to the Save command, as I only see it there and it is not marked in red to indicate it is bound to two commands.

    Does anyone have any advice on what might be going wrong? Thanks in advance! :-)

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    What version of Qt Creator are you using ?

  • Hi, it seems this problem still persists in year 2021 with Qt Creator 4.15.0. Any idea how to solve or workaround it?
