For some reason, pressing ctrl+i is sending a TAB command instead of executing evil-jump-forward. Viewing the lossage, I see:

C-o [evil-jump-backward]
TAB [c-indent-line-or-region]

From describe-bindings I see:

 <C-i>      evil-jump-forward

I've even updated my .spacemacs file:

  (global-set-key (kbd "C-i") 'evil-jump-forward)

..but this has the same result. Any ideas on what could be the issue?

  • C-i is the ASCII control character TAB. If you bind C-i to one command and then bind TAB to a different command, it's the same as binding C-i to first one then the other command. Those are the exact same keys. However the key <tab> can be bound to a different command, and that will typically be used when you hit the TAB key.
