How to select all text in qutebrowser using Ctrl+A

Sunday, May 2, 2021

This is really not a complicated thing to do, but it took me a while to figure out how to bind the command vvG to a key like Ctrl+A.

It turned out that the syntax for the keybinding was a bit different then from what I expected it to be:

:bind <Ctrl+a> mode-enter caret ;; selection-toggle ;; move-to-end-of-document

I usually try to stay away from Ctrl+<Key>, but for some things it just makes sense. Especially when it’s something that’s deeply rooted in the muscle memory.
