this might be an obvious question, but when you're in the terminal inside a docker, and you're editing a cronjob via crontab, how do you save the changes and exit?
i've changed the schedule from once a week to every day, but now i can't seem to see any way to actually save and exit.

i'm asssuming there is a key shortcut or something?
this is what i'm sitting at

That's very odd and messing with 30 years of muscle memory.

You might have to hit Escape twice before entering the ':wq' command. Try ':w' and then ':q'. To exit and not-write changes it should be ':q!'
