I am very used to Vim keys BUT I love to use Emacs. That's why Spacemacs in Evil mode is perfect for me. There is one thing I still cannot figure out how to do. I don't know how to use h,j,k,l for navigation in the SPC (M-x) prompt.

It is very awkward for me to use the cursor keys on my keyboard because they are very out of reach. So I am looking for a way to omit them completly when using Spacemacs and Evil mode.

One other thing is to select an autocomplete suggestion. Also here I need to use cursor keys because Vim cursor won't work. If you have an idea to fix this, too - please let me know!

    You can use C-j and C-k for navigating helm completions buffers. Use C-h to go up a directory when in SPC f f or similar completions. And learn using C-a, C-e, C-f, C-b, M-f and M-b for the minibuffer as it doesn't support evil-mode. Jun 24, 2019 at 11:59
