I have been trying to use Kitty for my Mac’s terminal, but I have still some issues. In the normal terminal, when I press
option + (left|right) arrow I jump over words in the corresponding direction.
However, I haven’t been able to get this to work properly. I have tried the following settings in my configuration file:
bindkey "\e[1;3D" backward-word # ⌥← bindkey "\e[1;3C" forward-word # ⌥→ map alt+left send_text all \x1b\x62 map alt+right send_text all \x1b\x66
I have also played around with
macos_option_as_alt but it didn’t change anything. Do you have any suggestions? Currently it looks like this when I press
option + left arrow +
space + | + space +
option + right arrow:

Edit: Ok this was a fast one, the following did the trick:
macos_option_as_alt yes # Custom Keybindings map alt+left send_text all \x1b\x62 map alt+right send_text all \x1b\x66
I’m leaving this here so that other’s can find this as well.
