  • Add constructive comments, bug reports, or discuss improvements (see the guideline).
  • Do not document the script here (the author should do that on
  • This page may be out of date: check the script's page above, and its release notes.


The quick_file plugin provides a :QF command to quickly jump to a file in the current directory, or in a subdirectory. Any part of a file name can be specified in the command, and the nearest matching file is returned.


The history of this page shows the original version, but I have cut a lot of the text because this page is only for users of the script to comment on it. Such comments are not possible at because of the spam problem, but the author can fully document the script there so I have removed the notes from here. JohnBeckett (talk) 06:35, July 11, 2014 (UTC)
