Obsidian is my personal knowledge management system of choice.
When I found out that Obsidian supports vim mode, I was delighted! However, while using it on my Mac, I noticed that I couldn’t hold movement keys
HJKL. Bad practice aside, it’s something I do pretty often.
The solution, turns out to be reasonably straightforward. In OSX, pressing and holding keys is disabled system-wide. Or, at least it was for me.
Running the following command in the terminal will help you on your way:
defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
This enables repeating keys for all apps on your system. Now, I can press and hold my Vim movement keys to my heart’s content.
