With C-x C-f Helm tells me I can go up one level with C-| or possibly C-I.

enter image description here

However, when I try either, I get the following behavior instead:


Selects the highlighted file. It does not go up one level.

So I guess it was supposed to be C-I but that isn't doing what is advertised. How can I go up one level?

    That's a lowercase L. – jagrg May 23 at 23:50

It's actually "L" in lower case.

You should set the default font to a monospace one, such as DejaVu Sans Mono, Hack, Noto Sans Mono, Source Code Pro, etc. They were designed to make code clearer to avoid confusion like this.
