In my quest to understand how to indent & unindent on MacVim using elegant shortcuts that are built-in... I couldn't figure how.

The following links explain that > < keys will be handy, but none work on my keyboard, hence I wanted to clarify if these keys are something other than visible on the physical macbook, but no explanations are found.

Please can someone give me more guidance?

  • Are you holding shift while pressing these keys? – abc Oct 20 '18 at 22:00
  • I see,, so shift + <+< or shift +>+> gives 8 movements – dia Oct 20 '18 at 22:03
  • Did this solve your problem?(I'll post an answer with this if it did) – abc Oct 20 '18 at 22:13

You have to hold the shift key then double-press either > or < to indent/unindent.
