When I am using
ido, it only shows the folders and not the files within the folders. I have the following code in the
;;Setup ido (ido-mode 1) (setq ido-find-file t) (setq ido-everywhere t) (setq ido-enable-flex-matching t) (setq ido-default-file-method 'selected-window) (setq ido-default-buffer-method 'selected-window) (setq ido-use-filename-at-point 'guess)
Can't understand why this is happening. Any tips are appreciated.
C-x C-fit may be truncating the list: are there three dots at the end? If so, there are too many completions for
idoto show you in the echo area: you'll have to help it by giving it a bit more information, e.g. the first few letters of the file name you are looking for. Pressing
TABwill show you a buffer with all the completions.
dired; it would be counter-productive for that command to offer non-directory completion options. (Well... actually, you can enter a non-directory and get a dired buffer showing the matching files... you probably wouldn't want that for a specific single file, though... I think it's primarily intended to be used with glob patterns.)
