Vim (Vi Improved) style typing support

Good day developers,

I’m wondering if Libreoffice has any plant to implement Vim-liked navigation and typing? I’m pretty sure this is a skill of every programmer knows.

I found there was an unmaintained plugin to support this feature but this has been outdate for a long time and probably not work for the latest versions of LibreOffice.

I hope your reply soon
Thank you very much

Good day developers

This site is users of LibreOffice trying to help other users of LibreOffice with problems/questions about LibreOffice usage. This site is not to contact developers and ask them about their future plans.

Might be a nice feature for some peope, you can add a feature request here:
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org
Make sure to first check if there is not already such a request.

And what’s the point of implementing it in LibreOffice? If you like vim, well, use vim. Word processors are not exactly text editors and vice versa. Programming in a word processor sounds like a very bad idea to me.

@gabix If you see it as bad in a word process, what might you think of it used in something like a web browser?

Personally I think its a neat idea, if enough persons think it is useful maybe LO will get a new operation mode.

But one thing i know for sure, if such a mode is added it will be inevitable that an emacs mode will be next up on the request list, and fast.

vimperator is dead since the raise of exclusive use of Webextension for addons. No new volunteers for rebuilding from scratch - seems that to few people rate this a “must have”-idea

Vimperator was just an example, but i think there might be other vim like projects …
