There is one "insert mode command" that works slightly differently than emacs mode, and that's ^W for vi-backward-kill-word. vi-kill-line would work differently, but you'd have to have exited from and then re-entered insert mode to notice. (Of course there are MORE commands in emacs mode, all bound to ctrl+something.) > > I have no idea how I would > > use vi command mode from a command line. Example: Hit ESC, and then hit "b" twice to move backward two words, and then hit "cw" to change the word you're on. Or: Hit ESC, and then "I" to go to insert something at the beginning of the command, and then ESC and "A" to go back to appending at the end. Do you never move left and right except one character at a time with the arrow keys, or by deleting? > At a minimum, I need to change the bind key for entering command mode so > it's not accidentally triggered. To see what's bound: bindkey -M viins You're interested in anything that's bound to vi-cmd-mode, e.g.: "^[" vi-cmd-mode To remove that: bindkey -M viins -r '^[' To add a different one, in this example two ESC in sequence: bindkey -M viins '^[^[' vi-cmd-mode
