Ctrl+IJKL to move. Other keys toggle move behavior. You can move across characters, words, search results, tabs, and more.
Ctrl+IJKLare contextual arrow keys. By default, they move the cursor one character at a time.
Ctrl+Shift+IJKLwill extend the selection.
- If you open the command palette or an autocomplete dropdown, they'll move through the options just like regular arrow keys.
- If you open the search panel, they'll move between search results.
- You can press other keys to modify move behavior, shown below.

Plenty of reasons:
Provide vim-like navigation without the steep learning curve
Vastly expand a user's hotkey repertoire without taxing memory
Eliminate the need to leave the home row when navigating through text
Create an economy of hotkeys, freeing up keyboard real estate so users can create their own hotkeys
Ctrl+A are some of the most widely adopted hotkeys of all time and I don't plan to remap their behavior.
Because this is not vim. The vast majority of users are already familiar with the “inverse T” style of navigation, thanks largely to WASD and the regular arrow keys.
Why not use Vim?
See above. This is a plugin for mortals.
Why not just extend behavior to the regular arrow keys?
Because moving your hand interrupts your workflow. I want to keep both hands on the home row for as long as I can.
You changed my favorite hotkey!
That wasn't a question, but yes, as with any plugin, you can remap the keys as you see fit.
