I use the vim plugin and I typically scroll in vim by just holding j. In VSCode holding j just does a single j command, no matter how long it's held for.

Even in vanilla vscode this also doesn't work - problematic if you're trying to type long blocks of ########################### for comment separators. Any idea how to enable this functionality?

To disable the Apple press and hold for VSCode only, run this command in a terminal:

defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

Then restart VSCode.

To re-enable, run this command in a terminal:

defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool true

The official vim-plugin for VS Code mentions how to set it up on macOS

defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
defaults delete -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled  # If necessary, reset global default

If you're on a mac and using VSCodium:

defaults write com.visualstudio.code.oss ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

Other answers targeting com.microsoft.VSCode do not work because you're not running MS VSCode. The command default write generates/updates files in ~/Library/Preferences/ appended with .plist, you have to target the right file.


Мое программное обеспечение и версии:
macOS Mojave 10.14.6
VSCodium 1.41.1
- Vim (by vscodevim) 1.12.4 с включенным
neovim Neovim 0.4.3 Vim 8.1.2250

Though I reset with above mentioned commands and even after reboot, Once I open
VSCode they are getting reset, so I had 'code' script to set them back
every time I open VSCode editor.

 $ cat code
VSCODE_CWD="$PWD" open -n -b "com.microsoft.VSCode" --args $* &
defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
defaults delete -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled

For those of you on VS Code Insiders, just change the Bundle identifier to:

defaults write com.microsoft.VSCodeInsiders ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

The best answer from Steve doesn't work for my mac 'defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false', however below works for me:

sudo defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

reference: https://github.com/VSCodeVim/Vim/issues/345

Mac To enable key-repeating execute the following in your Terminal and restart VS Code:

$ defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false         # For VS Code
$ defaults write com.microsoft.VSCodeInsiders ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false # For VS Code Insider
$ defaults write com.visualstudio.code.oss ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false    # For VS Codium
$ defaults delete -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled                                      # If necessary, reset global default

We also recommend increasing Key Repeat and Delay Until Repeat settings in System Preferences -> Keyboard.

this is all in our readme https://github.com/VSCodeVim/Vim/blob/master/README.md#mac-setup

You are on OSX, correct? If so, the issue might be Apple's "Press&Hold", where you can select alternative characters on long presses.

You can disable this "feature" with a defaults command in the terminal:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

You have to restart VSCode afterwards.

To reenable the previous behaviour:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool true

None of the above worked for me with my new laptop, instead I had to use:

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

The answer by Steve above didn't quite work for me because of global settings. It also left me curious about where to find the com.microsoft.VScode domain name for an app. Here is what worked for me and a generalized formulation:

To enable repeats for a specific app, like VSCode, first make sure that there isn't an overriding global setting.

defaults delete -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled

Then enable the setting for the specific app, you can find the domain name of an app by finding it in the Info.plist document under the Contents folder where it is installed.

Example

CFBundleIdentifier
com.microsoft.VSCode

Then set the setting on the command line.

defaults write com.microsoft.VSCode ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

You can use this pattern other app specific settings as well. Just make sure that your settings aren't being overwritten globally.

For more information on defaults type defaults help. One more note, you don't need to run this as sudo if your user is already an admin.
