Github Copilot in-Line Chat command (CTRL + I don't work


I am currently using copilot alongside cursor but, GitHub copilot’s in-line chat command CTRL + I (control + eye) don’t work.

Although the chat in the side panel works but it’s helpful to have in-line copilot features as well.

Please let me know if there is a fix for it?

Thank you.


It’s disabled because the assumption is that you would prefer to use Cursor’s own inline chat.

Would it be possible to use both or enable it in the settings? I often find myself alternating between them. Although Cursor is my preferred choice, I sometimes switch to Copilot due to concerns about usage limits.

Yes, I totally agree. due to the usage count limitations of cursor, for simple use cases I use GitHub copilot (better than cursor’s GPT3.5 – at least from my limited usage experience).

Hey everyone,

I’ve been waiting for the GitHub Copilot Ctrl+I command to work properly for quite some time. At first, I thought it was just some initial bugs, but it turns out it’s intentionally disabled in favor of Cursor’s own inline chat. This doesn’t really make sense to me, considering Cursor is marketed as fully compatible with all VSCode addons. Hope they consider enabling it, or at least give us the option in settings!

@cursor team, I would appreciate if you can enable the in-line github copilot Crtl + I command.
