Anytime I modify the spacemacs dotfile, I need to restart emacs in order for my modification to take effect. I have tried spc+f+e+R, but this does not work. Am I misunderstanding what spc+f+e+R (Reload configuration) does, or if not, has anybody else encountered this problem?
Sorry, I am new to emacs/spacemacs.
Edit: spc+f+e+R in my configuration corresponds to "Reload configuration". When I say that it does not work, I mean that whatever I changed does not take effect until I restart emacs. As an example, I tested remapping my 9 key to (. When I reload the configuration (without restarting emacs), the keys are not remapped. However, when I restart emacs, the keys are now remapped.
