vim I often find myself j-stepping by line to go, say, 8 or 10 lines down. For example, if I have a directory open in netrw and the directory I want is 8 lines down I will just jjjjjjjj+ENTERENTER. If it is farther down than that I will use a / search.
Is there any more efficient way for me to do this kind of navigation? I guess I could use 8j but the problem there is that you don't know the exact number of lines so you end up j-ing and k-ing anyway. My feeling is there is probably some trick that is better than spamming j.
