3.1 Aborting commands and processes

Key Sequence


Aborts the current command. Ctrl+G (or Esc in MacOS editor emulation) can either be used to abandon a command which has been partially typed in, or to abort the command which is currently running.

Note that, unlike most of the keys described in this manual, this cannot be changed via editor:bind-key . Instead, use editor:set-interrupt-keys if you wish to change this.
