As you can probably guess from the title, this follows on (belatedly) from my previous
Super quick, mini post to try and save some people from tearing their hair out. If like me you use Sublime Text 3 and Vintageous in Mac OS X Lion, you may be in for a nasty surprise when it comes to navigating in command mode... trying to hold down home-row keys for navigation just doesn't work. Key repeat seems to be broken.
The reason is that Apple changed the default behaviour in Lion to make international input a little bit easier—try holding down the 'e' key to see that in action—but the upshot is that the letter keys don't repeat. This is great for most people but a killer if you're trying to navigate a file using h, j, k and l.
All over the net there's plenty of sites telling you how to disable this feature, but nearly all of them only provide a global solution. A global fix might be for you, but I'm also in the process of using Duolingo to try and learn some French, and for that international input is a big plus so the global fix is right out. After some hunting I found a solution that works per application, based on the application's domain for app defaults.
For sublime text 3 you simply need to execute the following in a terminal:
defaults write com.sublimetext.3 ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
and then restart Sublime. If you're using Sublime Text 2 and hitting the same issue, you can probably guess what to change ;)
