Subject:   how to i set the vi bindings to kwrite? [or kwrite-devel]?
Message-ID:  <>

Ok, so it's KATE or kwrite or <<whatever the KDE editor is>>.  I
found something about 5yy (yank 5 lines).  But nothing about setting
up the vi/vim abbrevs feature; how to use the abbreviations feature
in this KDE edititor.  most of us---or, really, 100%---know how to
use the abbrev feature in vi.  but my intended user might be the
novice user in some backwoods country and might have trouble
learning tools like vi.  Thus, it makes more sense for these users
to use keyboard and mouse in the simplest GUI style.  While any GUI
text editor would do, it loooks like kwrite has C++ plugin

If  kwrite can bind to vi/vim, so much the better.

How do i set these binding, assuming that i can?
