Today I accidentally found a very unexpected thing in Vim. While trying to make wildmenu disappear I hit some of arrow keys and great truth was uncovered to me:
one can browse file system in wildmenu using arrow keys!
They work like this:
- left arrow - go to left
- right arrow - go to right
- up arrow - enter directory
- down arrow - go to parent directory
I know its not a big deal, but it was really unexpected to me. And in fact one
can find this in the documentation (see
<Left> <Right> - select previous/next match (like CTRL-P/CTRL-N) <Down> - in filename/menu name completion: move into a subdirectory or submenu. <CR> - in menu completion, when the cursor is just after a dot: move into a submenu. <Up> - in filename/menu name completion: move up into parent directory or parent menu.
So do read the documentation!
There is also a note:
This makes the menus accessible from the console |console-menus|.
So it may work with file system as a side effect of working for menus in the console.
