      :help 'timeout'
      :help 'ttimeout'
      :help 'timeoutlen'
      :help 'ttimeoutlen'

      For instance, to time out mappings after 10 seconds but keyboard
      auto-generated key sequences (for special keys in some terminals) after
      0.25 seconds:

      :set timeout timeoutlen=10000 ttimeoutlen=250

      The 'ttimeoutlen' setting should be large enough for your hardware
      (including the communication line if you're using Vim on a remote
      machine); 'timeoutlen' should be large enough for your typing speed
      (including hesitations).

      Best regards,
