I am learning to use
project-find-file. I know there are better alternatives in melpa, but I would like to learn the "out of the box" functionality.
When I do
project-find-file, start typing a filename, then TAB, I get a completion buffer. I expected to be able to navigate in that buffer with arrows, and
C-p. Is it possible to set it up like that, or is this just a limitation of the tool?
If it's just not possible, I'd be ok to use
ido for this.
Here is my current config for
(ido-mode 'both) ;; for buffers and files (setq ido-save-directory-list-file "~/.emacs.d/cache/ido.last" ido-ignore-buffers ;; ignore these guys '("\\` " "^\*Mess" "^\*Back" ".*Completion" "^\*Ido" "^\*trace" "^\*compilation" "^\*GTAGS" "^session\.*" "\*GNU Emacs\*") ido-work-directory-list '("~/" "~/Desktop" "~/Documents" "~/src") ido-case-fold t ; be case-insensitiver ido-enable-last-directory-history t ; remember last used dirs ido-max-work-directory-list 30 ; should be enough ido-max-work-file-list 50 ; remember many ido-use-filename-at-point nil ; don't use filename at point (annoying) ido-use-url-at-point nil ; don't use url at point (annoying) ido-enable-flex-matching nil ; don't try to be too smart ido-max-prospects 8 ; don't spam my minibuffer ido-confirm-unique-completion t) ; wait for RET, even with unique completion ;; when using ido, the confirmation is rather annoying... (setq confirm-nonexistent-file-or-buffer nil)
