I transfer the original post from StackOverflow (Original post) to here since this is about Apple specificity.
I have a new macbook with Mojave and vim already installed.
Unfortunately, even for small source files, the cursor is very fast when I browse the current part of file where I am located but it becomes very slow when I am over this current page (the same thing occurs if I am over or lower this part) with down/up keys.
I don't talk about "mouse scrolling speed" but scrolling with down/up keys.
I saw and tried to apply different suggested solutions on web but none of these work for me (disable
cursorline, using an empty
~/.vimrc , etc ...).
Maybe threre is a conflict with some options in my
Here below my

I have changed into
System Preferences the delay between 2 repeated keys to a small value :
So, into the default Terminal of Mojave macbook, I can move quickly with left/right keys on the command line.
Is there a relation between this small delay I have set and this slow scroll vertically with donw/up keys into vim ?
Another bug which must be known is that some commented code parts (for example when editing Python code with vim) appears as not commented when scrolling with down/up keys and also the contrary occurs : anyone has already got this strange behavior ? this problem doesn't happen when I browse file with
Any help is welcome, Regards
UPDATE 1 :
Finally, I get to increase speed with the following link :
I decided to switch to
iterm2. So, as partial conclusion, the solution was to set fatest options in
System Preferences and put into
#disable special characters when holding keys defaults write NSGlobalDomain ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false # normal minimum is 15 (225 ms) defaults write -g InitialKeyRepeat -float 10.0 defaults write NSGlobalDomain InitialKeyRepeat -float 10.0 # normal minimum is 2 (30 ms) defaults write NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat -float 1.0 defaults write -g KeyRepeat -float 1.0 ############# Enable spees ######################
It might be even too fast. That's why I wonder if there is a way to apply this big speed only for selected keys, i.e in my case, I would like to have this behavior for only down/up and left/right keys and NOT for the others keys (letters or special characters) ?
Is it possible to get this behavior ?
UPDATE 2 : Ok, I have finally found the trick : in
iterm2 terminal, there is a GPU rendering option on below image :
If you have no power on, GPU rendering was by default disable like, so uncheck the first box to be able to benefit from GPU rendering when computer is on battery :
That's all !
