Can we use vim to move modal selection?

For example when you trigger `Go to File...`, type some name, then want to move the selection down.

Instead of pressing the down arrow, can we use vim like hitting the `j` key?



Thank you for contacting Rider support.

Regrettably, there is no way to move selection down via `j` key as it is reserved for typing itself. However, you can assign for example `Alt+j` hotkey so it would work.

You can assign a custom hotkey for `Down` action from `File | Settings | Keymap | Other Actions | Down | Right-click | Add Keyboard Shortcut`.

Hope it helps. Have a nice day!


Nice, that alternative works for me as well.
