I have spacemacs and when I search for a word using / once it turns out that I can't access it later on using the up arrow. This feature is present in vim so how do I cycle through search history after hitting / ?

    I am not using spacemacs, but in vanilla emacs while using incremental search (C-s or C-r) you can cycle through the search ring via M-p and M-n. – theldoria Aug 22 '16 at 8:06
  • ^ this worked for me. My meta is Esc so it was Esc-p or Esc-n – storypixel May 25 '17 at 12:53

To enable this feature in Spacemacs add (setq-default evil-search-module 'evil-search) in dotspacemacs/user-init () section.
