Chapter 23. The vi Editor > Movement Commands

23.4. Movement Commands

Some versions of vi don't recognize extended keyboard keys (e.g., arrow keys, Page Up, Page Down, Home, Insert, and Delete); some do. All, however, recognize the keys in this section. Many users of vi prefer to use these keys, because it helps them keep their fingers on the home row of the keyboard. A number preceding a command repeats the movement. Movement commands are also objects for change, delete, and yank operations.
