Using vifm, we use Space to jump from one pane to the other. But in iTerm2 on a Mac, pressing Space while a file or folder triggers a quicklook.
Does anyone know a configuration trick in iTerm2 (or elsewhere) that changes this behaviour so that I can use vifm productively?
(Sorry that this is not really a vifm question per se, but I can't find relevant information elsewhere and figured someone here would know.)
Answering my own question. I have transferred from Windows to Mac and assumed vifm would work more or less as it always has for me. But the Mac install of vifm (via brew) has a customised default vifmrc, which is well and good but it is the cause of the issue I have raised. Specifically the line:
" View preview in Quick Look
nnoremap <space> :!qlmanage -p %f > /dev/null 2>&1<cr>
I will now change this mapping to use a different key. The functionality is desired but not the use of Space.
Thank you to xaizek: your answer was very helpful.
Whatever quicklook is, you can always map another key (o in this case):
nnoremap o <space>
Or use Ctrl-WCtrl-W.
