Is anyone else having issues with arrow key file navigation? Just did a fresh install and I can’t navigate to files with the arrow keys.


Time to learn the Evil way of Vim, they you will never need to use those arrow keys again...

Seriously though, are you navigating in dired, helm, ivy or treemacs?


Related question: When navigating pop-ups like auto-complete I know I can press C-j to move down the list of options. The trouble begins for me when I realize I went too far and press C-k to move back up the list. C-k in insert mode appears to run evil-insert-digraph through which I've managed to lock up my spacemacs multiple times. Is this a problem other people have encountered? Did you just rebind C-k when in the auto-complete minor state? (Is there such a thing?)


why navigate in a pop-up at all? press C-/ and do it in helm

I wasn't aware of C-/. That said, given how often I use auto-complete an extra keystroke to open helm every time is not an insignificant burden.


I use company a lot and the issue you’re talking about bothered me too. So I did this:

(with-eval-after-load 'company
  (define-key company-active-map (kbd "C-n") 'company-select-next)
  (define-key company-active-map (kbd "C-p") 'company-select-previous)
  (define-key company-active-map (kbd "C-f") 'company-search-candidates))
but most of the time I just do C-/ - better search and etc.


Right on. Thanks for teaching me about C-/ and for the snippet! I'm definitely going to add that to my .spacemacs. ❤️
