Jump between changes
Vim tracks all of the changes you make during an editing session. You can undo and redo these changes with
Ctrl-r. You can even navigate back and forth through history like a time traveller. But Vim has another useful change tracking feature: the changelist.
Vim keeps track of the position of every undo-able change and makes the last 100 available to you when you call
:changes. You can navigate backwards and forwards to these positions in your file without undoing the change by using
:changes– Show position of last 100 changes
g;-Jump backwards to the position of the previous change
g,– Jump forwards to the position of the next change
