I have the following code that I found here (note that the buffer version works fine):
(use-package helm) (use-package ace-window) (defun helm-find-ace-window (file) "Use ‘ace-window' to select a window to display FILE." (ace-select-window) (find-file file)) (add-to-list 'helm-find-files-actions '("Find File in Ace window" . helm-find-ace-window) :append) (defun helm-file-run-ace-window () (interactive) (with-helm-alive-p (helm-exit-and-execute-action 'helm-file-ace-window))) (define-key helm-find-files-map (kbd "M-o") #'helm-file-run-ace-window)
If I run
helm-find-files and then hit TAB on a file (to open the action menu), I am able to scroll down to an entry called
Find File in Ace window and hit enter. This works perfect.
Strangely though if instead of hitting TAB I use my
M-o key binding, emacs spits back to me:
[No such action 'helm-file-ace-window' for this source].
I find it contradictory that I can select the action from the action menu, yet when I use a key binding emacs says the action does not exist.
I am using Emacs 27.2 and Helm 3.6.2
