Hi,

My apologies if this isn't the right place for this.

Here's some terminal output to show the issue I'm running into.

```zsh
~/Desktop/Development
➜ cd ...  # Showing that the "..." alias works to like "cd ../.."

~
➜ cd Desktop/Development  # Just resetting the working dir

~/Desktop/Development
➜ cd .../Desktop    # Showing that the alias breaks when any other
modifications are made to the path :(
cd: no such file or directory: .../Desktop

~/Desktop/Development
➜ cd ../../Desktop   # Showing that the path I tried to cd to is valid

~/Desktop
➜ # Path is valid

➜ zsh --version
zsh 5.7 (x86_64-apple-darwin18.2.0)
```

The same behavior can be observed with the .... and ..... aliases. I
recently upgraded to zsh 5.7.2 from 5.6.2, but I'm not sure if this is
related to that. It's very possible this is a configuration error.

Does anyone have any suggestions with regard to how to debug this? I looked
through my .zshrc and .zprofile files and everything seems to be in order.
I don't have a great understanding of zsh internals and am a bit lost.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best,
Aaron Lichtman

Remove your aliases and use this instead,

# just type '...' to get '../..'
function _rationalise-dot() {
  local MATCH MBEGIN MEND
  if [[ $LBUFFER =~ '(^|/| |	|'$'\n''|\||;|&)\.\.$' ]]; then
    LBUFFER+=/
    zle self-insert
  fi
  zle self-insert
}
zle -N _rationalise-dot
bindkey . _rationalise-dot
# without this, typing a . aborts incremental history search
bindkey -M isearch . self-insert
# dito for searching in menu selection
bindkey -M menuselect . self-insert
