Actually I figured out long before that the problem is not :Files, it is my other conf in my vimrc:
" Enter automatically into the files directory
autocmd BufEnter * silent! lcd %:p:h
I should update this old (cross) post accordingly :)
Thanks for your comment. I look at your post and it is so awesome. I almost use them all as well.
Btw. which tool do you use to record your screen?
Hi, Serhat. Awesome post indeed. I had the same problem as you. I used "set autochdir" because of Nerdtree (to always open the nerdtree window to the right directory), however, when I look for any file using fzf it only looks for the current directory (not the root path if I open a file in a subfolder). How did you solve it? Thanks in advance!
Hi Paulo. Thanks a lot. My ideal solution suggestion would be don't use autochdir at all. I don't use it anymore. I cd into project root then make the search, edit etc.
However if you like to use it though, there are 3 solutions for it:
1 - Using above solution of mine. Add them in your .vimrc
2 - Using :Gfiles command of fzf.vim plugin
3 - Add 'dbakker/vim-projectroot' plugin and map necessary command like below. My mapping is "Ctrl+P" but you can modify according to your favorites.
map <C-p> :<C-u>ProjectRootExe Files<CR>
Tell me these fixes solve your issue.
