As mentioned in this question, I can not use org mode properly within tmux. So, I would want to remap key bindings like alt+RET for creating a new bullet item or shift + left/right arrow to change an item hierarchy.

How would I do that?

  • The question is too generic. @Alevardi What have you tried so far? Have a look this recent answer on emacs.SE. That answer is for python-mode-map but the same steps to figure out the default bound command, and redefine the binding using define-key applies in your case too.. just that now it is org-mode-map.

    Many of us read both forums, so please choose just one forum and avoid cross-posting. This one is generally more forgiving, so if someone already voted to close, that is a sign you should probably spend some time editing the question. The other forum is a bunch of serious hard-core programmers that insist on hard-core programming questions -- e.g., sample code of what almost works . . . .

See the Info page "(org) TTY keys" for alternative chords for various Org chords.

The listed speed keys must be activated separately.
