Removing atom core keybinding


Hello everyone.

I just started using atom and I find it amazing but I have a huge problem. Basically I cant write { in my css files because the keystroke I use to write that (alt + b) is already mapped in keybindings to editor:move-to-beginning-of-word. So my question is how can I remove that keybinding as it isn’t useful to me and only causes me troubles. Thanks in advance.


For international keyboard where basic shortcut interfere with typing special char, keyboard-localization package is often useful.

Else consider adding something like this to your custom keymap

  'alt-b': 'unset!'
