In a regular terminal (i.e. no multiplexer) I can use the combination of Ctrl-Left/Right arrows to jump over several words. However, in tmux I am not able to do that.

PS: I am still reading Tmux by Brian P. Hogan.

PS 2: I am using Zsh.


To jump over words enable xterm-keys: set-window-option -g xterm-keys on
