ALT + Arrows does not work in integrated terminal #11908

BobReid commented Sep 12, 2016

Alt and arrow keys insert characters into the terminal buffer instead of navigating to the begging and ends of words in the integrated terminal

Environment:
OS: OS X El Capitan
Version: VSCode 1.5.2

Repro:

  1. Open Integrated terminal
  2. Type 'cd ~/'
  3. Press Alt + Left Arrow

Expected:
Cursor should jump to begin of ~/ so ~ is highlighted

Actual
;5D is inserted into the buffer at cursors current location

I think this will be fixed when we uplevel xterm.js via xtermjs/xterm.js@8324b43

Is this fixed? I Just updated to 1.6.0 and am still seeing the issue in the integrated terminal.

It doesn't seem to be on Mac only. I reopened the upstream issue xtermjs/xterm.js#225

Is this related to Alt+Backspace not working?
