Note: Please don’t file bugs & issues here: file issues on our GitHub repos instead:

Please DO post your asks, ideas, wants and needs for future features: We ARE listening, and we ARE grateful for your feedback!

  1. Make typing ctrl-? emit a dir listing for the path before caret. Csh does this, and it is immensely useful when trying to complete pathname

    Make typing ctrl-? emit a dir listing for the path before caret. Csh does this, and it is immensely useful when trying to complete pathnames and you don't know the next subdir to start the name for completion. Otherwise, you have to esc, type dir + path, retype previous cmd line, etc.

      • Make [Ctrl]+[Delete] work like it works in text editors

        In current tech preview it is possible to delete a whole word by using [Ctrl]+[Backspace] which is great! Unfortunately you cannot do the usual [Ctrl]+[Delete] that usually does the same but deletes the word after the cursor. It is just a counterpart of [Ctrl]+[Backspace] so I think it would be logical to implement it too. Thanks!
