Navigate by char. The best way to “get” it is to try it.


Any other key stops jump-char and edits as normal.

<char>move to the next match in the current direction.
;next match forward (towards end of buffer)
,next match backward (towards beginning of buffer)
C-c C-cinvoke `ace-jump-mode’ if available


C-c C-c switches to ace-jump-mode seemlessly.


The behaviour is strongly modeled after `iy-go-to-char’ with the following differences:

  • point always stays before match
  • point during search is same as after exiting
  • lazy highlighting courtesy of isearch
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
