How I search for patterns in VIM just improved a bit today. Generally I’d search like so:
<CR> exits search mode, and refining the search requires one to enter search mode using
/ followed by the up arrow allowing refinements to the search.
Today I learned about
<C-t> which will jump to the next occurrence of the current pattern while focus is still in the search box. This can allow for a search workflow that allows one to jump through search hits and refine the search more efficiently.
