13.8. Working in vi mode

You can use vi as your preferred editor when working on source files in the File Editor. This is a full implementation offering all vi commands. Disabled by default, select Edit → Editing Controls → VI mode from the Code window main menu to switch into vi editor mode. This inserts another command line at the bottom of the File Editor pane where you can enter vi commands.

From here, press Escape to switch between text input mode and command mode. However, when editing your file, mouse actions and menu options can be used interchangeably with vi commands. For example, the yank (y) commands pull text into the paste buffer from where it can be pasted.

Place the mouse over the vi command line to paste commands in the same way as text.
