You just place (file-name-nondirectory buffer-file-name) as second argument behind helm-find-files-1

In which file do i need to do this?

Ah okay... I see helm-find-files puts a "^" in front of the file

Copy the spacemacs/helm-find-files to your user-config and do it there

But put this in that file (concat "^" (file-name-nondirectory buffer-file-name))
But then I really recommend you to read some chapters of https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/eintr.html
And take a vim tutorial if you are open to try it
It will take some time for you to learn using Spacemacs... but you made the best choice!

(depending on what you want to use it for. There are better 'specialized' editors, but there is no better 'general' editor, and for sure not as elegant and fun...)

sorry, i am a bit slow to go through all this information : )
where do i find the 'helm-find-files-1' function ?
in the .emacs.d folder? I did a grep and it does not seem to be there
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
It is the last expression in the spacemacs/helm-find-files function
Momo10101
@Momo10101
ohh i see!
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
You type C-h f then space find file
Ah okay
so place the snippet behind input

Yes, i will read it! Thanks! I am stuck at a basic emacs level because i dont know elisp. Its been on my todo list for too long now

My last line looks like this: (helm-find-files-1 input (concat "^" (file-name-nondirectory buffer-file-name)))))

For example, try to do what you are asking now in any other editor... I think, genrally, it will by far not be this easy

Just a few chapters will get you a long way (like 1 or two hours read, until you get the feeling that you understand the basics)

Maybe it takes less time (or more)... I don't remember

Nice, its working now. Thanks a lot! That should be the standard behavior imho : )

Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
Well... in Spacemacs everybody can have his own opinion

Ok cool, i already have programming experience so hopefully it will be an easy read

Lisp is only a little strange, but not much more difficult than e.g. python

One last thing that annoys me about spacemacs, the undo is not like vanilla emacs. In emacs there are infinite undos. Is there a way to get that in spacemacs?
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
Well in Spacemacs undo's are also infinite
But you can choose amongst different undo systems
However, I have never read about it
You can probably find explanations easily on the web
(But probably mostly about vim/evil style editing)
Momo10101
@Momo10101
Really? It doesnt behave the same as in emacs. In spacemacs sometimes i cant get back to a certain point by undoing. For example if i write something, undo, write something, then undo can go back to the initial state
Ok, i will have a look online for the different undo behaviors
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
Well it is Emacs so it can behave like Emacs... but I don't know how it is configured in Spacemacs
Momo10101
@Momo10101
ok
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
Yeah... good luck. Enjoy!

@Momo10101
I meant to say vanilla emacs
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
Yes me too

Yeah... good luck. Enjoy!

Thanks for all the help! I appreciate it

When I search I want to quit highlighting with just escape. I know I can do SPC s c but I find it quite annoying to do all the time. Is it possible to just do it with ESC?
Daniel Nicolai
@dalanicolai
@Guisanpea You can advice the function bound to ESC
(advice-add 'evil-force-normal-state :after 'spacemacs/evil-search-clear-highlight)
I think it does no harm to run spacemacs/evil-search-clear-highlight every time
Otherwise you could create a conditional using evil-ex-active-highlights-alist
You can read about advising function here

I started having issues where text in a buffer will begin shifting to the right for every key press that occurs while that buffer is active. I updated to the latest origin/develop this morning and rebuilt all ELPA libs then this behavior began. It doesn't seem to actually be writing spaces to the buffer, merely shifting the visual presentation one space to the right. Does anyone know what might be going on and how to fix it?

I found the cause and a solution. In case someone else has this issue, commit 151ca61 switched the default version-control lib to git-gutter. There's an issue listed for it that causes this problem (emacsorphanage/git-gutter#160). The suggested solution of setting the diff tool to 'diff-hl' worked for me. Add the following snippet to your dotspacemacs-configuration-layers section.
     (version-control :variables
                      version-control-diff-tool 'diff-hl)
