So, I'm trying to use vim's help tags in my notes files, so that i can easily reach them (without using ex command or making a new keymapping).
For that, i used:
to set the tags file to the one for the help/doc.
Now it does work for most tags, but i noticed that some tags just won't work when used with
*E426* "works *:ta* "E426: tag not found: ta *:tag* "doesn't work, goes to *tag* instead of *:tag* *tag* "works
As seen in the example above, some just doesn't work. Though, they do work fine when used with the
And yes, i did check in the
tags file previously mentioned (which can be found at
$VIMRUNTIME/doc/tags) if the non-working tags were present, and they were (not surprising since they do work with the ex command
:help and it's variation, but not on this specific case).
:helptags $VIMRUNTIME/doc just to make sure and compared the hash of the new and old one, though they were the same, so problem likely isn't coming from that.
- The former would require me to use help file structure, which i prefer not to (compared to the workflow previously described that wouldn't require me to use any special/specific filetype or template).
- The latter would only link to generated urls of the docs in different templates.
Using Vim 8.2, compiled Oct 26 2020, Including all features.
Anyway, I'm a bit lost as to why it doesn't work for the specified tags in my previous example. Any input appreciated.
