Inserting unusual characters in Vim

Using digraphs can speed up entering non-ascii characters.

Vim allows you enter that normally cannot be entered by a keyboard. For example to insert € (euro sign), type <kbd>Ctrl k e=</kbd> in the Insert mode.

Other examples:

  • <kbd>Ctrl k e=</kbd> produces ½
  • <kbd>Ctrl k y:</kbd> produces ű

To see the whole list type: :digraphs.
