    • On a new install there are a lot of bell for actions that do no work, and since I have such a sloppy use of VIM it is really annoying. To disable:

Basically, IdeaVIM reads your ~/.ideavimrc (~/.vimrc pre-v0.35) file and silently ignores any settings it does not understand. Of the bell-related settings, it does not understand :set noerrorbells, but it does understand :set visualbell. And since it has no implementation for a visual bell, it will do nothing and achieve the desired effect. So in your ~/.ideavimrc, you can use the following:

set visualbell
set noerrorbells
