I changed the Modkey of my window manager, so that it doesn't rely on the ALT key anymore and no remapping of keys for latex-suite is necessary.
Mapping CTRL+i didn't work but any other key combination does.
I try to map Alt+i for inserting the item element to C+i.
So I followed the instructions from the latex-suite manual, which
states that the Alt-key mappings belong into the $VIM/ftplugin/tex.vim
file. I put the following line into the file
tex_latexSuite.vim that is being
read when a
.tex file is edited by vim also created a softlink for
imap <c-i> <Plug>Tex_InsertItemOnThisLine
OK at first it kind of worked. By pressing c+i it inserted the item element
but also when i did hit Tab. And sometimes I could see a message, when a
.tex file is being, that states the Tab key has been mapped to the
<Plug>Tex_InsertItemOnThisLine in the tex_latexSuite.vom file Oo.
I also tried it with
:verbose imap <Tab>
~/.vimrc but that doesn't work either.
Ok so either the Tab key works as expected or by adding the wanted mapping it doesn't work at all, also does c+i or both mappings insert item on the current line.
