These key mappings (placed in your vimrc) let you use the F8 and F9 keys to make a window wider or taller. The shift key reverses the effect, and the Ctrl and Alt modifiers go to a choice of standard settings. Mappings to change the font size.(which work slightly differently) are also included. Obviously you can change F8 and F9 to keys of your choice.

CommentsEdit

Window resizing can also be done at window-manager level, so that it will work for all applications. In my case .fluxbox/keys contains:

# window sizing
Mod4 m :MaximizeWindow
Mod1 Mod4 h :HorizontalDecrement
Mod1 Mod4 j :VerticalIncrement
Mod1 Mod4 k :VerticalDecrement
Mod1 Mod4 l :HorizontalIncrement

# window movement
Mod4 h :BigNudgeLeft
Mod4 j :BigNudgeDown
Mod4 k :BigNudgeUp
Mod4 l :BigNudgeRight

As you can see, I used the familiar vim movement keys.

I mapped mod4 to the windows-key on my keyboard. To achieve this, you will need to put the following lines in ~/.Xmodmap:

! alt keys (explicitly configured, without this section meta doesn't work)
keycode 64 = Alt_L
add mod1 = Alt_L
keycode 113 = Alt_R
add mod1 = Alt_R

! ms flag keys
keycode 115 = Meta_L
keycode 116 = Meta_R
add mod4 = Meta_L
add mod4 = Meta_R

There is an amazingly intutitive script replacement, called "mouse". Although I wouldn't use it for each cursor movement, I would definitely use it in this particular case, rather than keys bound by some scripts.


Addition: I use <Ctrl> plus Cursor Keys to resize the current window relative to the neighbour window of a splitted screen.

' resize horzontal split window
nmap <C-Left> <C-W>-<C-W>-
nmap <C-Right> <C-W>+<C-W>+
' resize vertical split window
nmap <C-Up> <C-W>><C-W>>
nmap <C-Down> <C-W><<C-W><
