Increase speed of keyboard navigation


I know there’s a way to increase the speed of scrolling when scrolling with a mouse or trackpad, but if I move up and down lines with ctrl + p and ctrl + n, is there a way to increase the speed with which the cursor when navigating this way? (On OS Sierra)


This isn’t a setting for Atom or any text editor for that matter, but rather an OS setting. On mac you could do:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat -int 0

to set the keyboard repeat rate fast.

Additionally, I recommend using ‘jump to’ to all it’s capacity (lines, methods, etc.)
