Lets say I'm already in emacs and I need to open some obscure file (long complicated path) that I rarely ever edit (so its not in my recent files list) - what is the correct way to do this using spacemacs shortcuts?
Currently I have to use helm and manually type the path to the file. Id rather have some sort of browser where I could look at directory structures and select folders to "cd" into
Secondly, lets say I need to create a brand new file in some obscure directory. Again, what is the correct spacemacs way to create this new file?
I'm pretty new to emacs so the way that I'm currently doing this things (manually typing paths in helm) feels very slow and I'm mostly wondering whether this is common or whether theres another way to do these things that I'm not aware of
