Hi, I've just came up with this issue in Vi/Vim Keyboard personality. "Selection Mode -> Cancel" and "Source->Enclose->Enclose with []" have the same keybinding, Ctrl+[. How can I change it without re-writting Vi/Vim Personality to fix that?

Ctrl-[ is not the binding for enclose with [] in vi mode. You can add a binding for it via the User Interface > Keyboard page of the Preferences dialog; add an entry to the Custom Key Bindings list with the command: enclose(start="[", end="]")

I will make some screenshots or small video to show that Ctrl-[ is in fact overlapped when in vi keyboard personality and send it to Is that okay? :)

Are you seeing the binding in the menus? Or, does pressing Ctrl-[ enclose text in [ ]? You can always email us at

I can see the binding in menus, plus having enclosure working is hit or miss, because sometimes it cancels the selection, and sometimes encloses it with [], which also have small bug, maybe relates to vi personality, that if you have something like np.array(1,2,3,5,4) And you select numbers, from left to right, it encloses it like this: np.array([1,2,3,5,4)] Instead of np.array([1,2,3,5,4]) I will send screenshot shortly that it is "clashing" in vi keyboard personality selected.
