Yes, I'm sorry. Usually neovim wraps automatically, but that does not work
when I edit lines afterwards. Really got to set up a color column for
commit messages.

Very good point, I did not think about that.
Macs do have a control key and that ctrl key seems to have the same keycode [1], so
the label would also be correct on a Mac, and the shortcut *should* work.

However, it would of course be more idiomatic to use Cmd-Shift-F, because
browsers usually use Cmd-F for search on macOS.
So in other words, we should adapt the label AND change the code that sets
up the keyboard shortcut.
Will look into that, just need to find a way how to test this properly ;)

Judging from the web inspector, this attribute does not seem to be set.
I'll look into that.
