Is it possible to change the completion key (escape) to command for instance? How?

1 Answer 1


From the same question asked on SO:

To remap the esc key you have to copy



~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/KeyBindings.dict

and then edit it, preferably using TextMate :) as Property List Editor messes up the codes.

Look for nextCompletion and previousCompletion and replace their values with whatever suits your needs best.

For example, you could replace \033 (code for esc) to ->|tab.

  • both \t and ->| can be esoteric to individuals. Could you change ->| to ->| tab? Dec 8, 2010 at 18:09
  • @VxJasonxV - no problem. Done.
