Ranger has a feature where you can paste a yanked path as a link with "pl". How could I do something similar in Vifm? I tried yanking a file to register "c", going to the destination directory, and using the command :alink %"rc, but it didn't work.

Just use one of two builtin shortcuts:

  • al - put symbolic links with absolute paths;
  • rl - put symbolic links with relative paths.
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.
