Probably a very simple answer, but when I use
helm-find-files, I often accidentally hit C-k (
helm-delete-minibuffer-contents) instead of C-j (
helm-execute-persistent-action), deleting the entire minubuffer instead of navigating into a directory.
I noticed that the variable
helm-delete-minibuffer-contents-from-point exists, which when, the documentation states,
is non-‘nil’, delete minibuffer contents from point instead of deleting all. Giving a prefix arg reverses this behavior. When at the end of minibuffer, deletes all.
So I've tried in my init to set
(setq helm-delete-minibuffer-contents-from-point t)
but still C-k produces exactly the same behaviour of deleting the entire minibuffer. What gives? Am I doing something totally stupid?
