Forget about reaching distant Enter. Replace it with:

  • Ctrl j or
  • Ctrl m

I’ve already covered similar protip but realized that in Vim when Ctrl j is mapped to moving down in the file explorer (it might come from vinegar.vim or other plugins), you can use Ctrl m. The latter is also not that far away.

Last note: don’t forget to remap Capslock-a relic of the past to Ctrl.
