The main highlight of the 1.8.0 release is the change to how scrolling with CTRL-D and CTRL-U works. This has been a long standing issue and it’s nice to finally deliver a fix.

command action
ctrl-d scroll window downwards in the buffer
ctrl-u scroll window upwards in the buffer

Note that the ctrl keys are disabled by default (this will change in v2.0.0), to enable the keys update your settings.

Menu > Preferences > Settings:

    "vintageous_use_ctrl_keys": true
