windows 10 , Emacs 26.1, Icicles

In my init.el

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elpa/icicles")
(require 'icicles)
(icy-mode 1)

And when I type the candidates are show on the right side.

enter image description here


Is it possible to candidates to show ABOVE mini-buffer?

    This has nothing to do with Icicles in particular. See option split-width-threshold - set it to a large number.

  • I must set not big number. I need to set "split-width-threshold" to nil. If this is nil, ‘split-window-sensibly’ is not allowed to split a window horizontally. This is exact what I need. Thanks. Sep 6 '18 at 7:20
  • Do you mean that you want the candidates on the left side, with the original buffer on the right?
