The CTRL+x+e keyboard shortcut allows you to open your favorite editor, as defined in the
$EDITOR shell environment variable.
This has stopped working for me recently, but I am not sure what changed.
$EDITOR in my
.zshrc set to VS Code like so:
Earlier, triggering the above shortcut in
zsh on iTerm2:
- It would open a tab in an active VS Code window.
- It would allow me to type my long command.
- I would then close the tab, VS Code would ask if I wanted to save the file, I would click on No and it would return to the zsh tab with the long command already entered.
- I just had to press the RETURN key then for running the pasted command.
Now, if I follow the same steps as above, the typed command is no longer entered in the zsh shell, even though the VS Code tab closes.
macOS Big Sur - 11.2.2
VS Code - 1.55.2
iTerm2 - 3.4.4
zsh - 5.8
I could replicate the same erroneous behavior on the natively-available Terminal app.
Has anyone else faced this problem? Could someone help please?
