I am trying to use ':select !{external command}' . If I run :select !{fd --type f} it selects all files and folders. What is the correct way of using it?

Thank you

Don't add { and }, they are just to name part of the string to reference in the description.

Thank you, yes that solved it.

Can this approach be used for :delete? It doesn't seem to be in the manual, but I was wondering if I can work around it?

:delete !fd --type d<cr>

You can do :select! !fd --type d and then :delete.

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
