To indent between matching brackets (go over the bracket)
To copy to the X clipboard or Windows clipboard using the keyboard (as opposed to the vim clipboard)

To copy to the X clipboard, I’ve found it can be easier than the crossed out jazz to set your terminal short cuts . I tend to use CTRL+SHIFT+C for copy, CTRL+SHIFT+V for paste. This also has the advantage of working regardless of editor.
These can be handy!
