Helm only saves user input history that was not cancelled. Could I include those cancelled input to history? I sometimes cancel some useful inputs because I just wanted to have a peek. I would like to keep those inputs in history so that I can re-search again quickly.

  • FWIW, Icicles has a separate history for things you used for completion and things you finally entered (e.g. RET) in the minibuffer. You can use C-l (icicle-retrieve-previous-input) and C-L, (icicle-retrieve-next-input) to cycle among your past completion inputs. Perhaps Helm now has something similar.

  • I think this would be a mess of a feature. Maybe you'd get your job done by accepting the completion and then just popping the mark to get back to where you started? Apr 5, 2018 at 19:33
