While use spacemacs in evil mode, I sometimes accidentally disable evil mode and I do not understand how I am doing it. And once disabled, I do not know how to reenable the mode without restarting emacs.

  1. Any idea what I am doing?
  2. How do I reenable evil mode?

1 Answer 1


I believe I am hitting C-z, which toggles between Evil and Emacs mode.

    SPC t E e also toggles into Emacs mode, but its probably more likely you're just hitting C-z ;)
