# what is “<++>” path used for? [duplicate]

My vim snippet appear <++> every time i i use tab. I want to use tab completion, yet the <++> doesn't make any sense. For instance, /title{<++>}. Is there a mapping feature in vim snippet i didn't know? or quick shortcut that i miss.

• can you post the output of :imap <Tab>? In general the <++> is a placeholder, so you can fill things in and jump to it by pressing ctrl-J – A Gold Man Nov 22 '17 at 20:31
