Well, I have learnt (and still doing) it from a cheatsheet: http://ranger.nongnu.org/cheatsheet.png

I usually look at the bindings in the cheatsheet and if I find one, that I am not sure what it is for, I just try to press it in Ranger. Also, press ? in ranger and then c for commands. That's probably all you need. Unfortunately, not all commands are documented - this should be done.

OK, wiki may be improved.

* You're right. Tagging files needs some improvements (AFAIK, you can't use tagged files directly in ranger commands, but list of files is available in global variable %t, so you can do something like: `:shell cp %t directory` or even `:delete %t`. I don't know how to add tagged files to the buffer).

* Is there anything more you're missing? I can't think of anything.

Would be interested in an in-depth tutorial too.

    Hi everyone,
        I am looking for a thorough tutorial for Ranger. I'm using it for
    about 2 months now and I feel like I'm barely scraping the surface of
    what's possible.
        I've read the man page and keybindings, and read few
    webpages I managed to find (one explained very useful bulk rename) but
    for example, while I know how to tag files - I still don't know how to
    then use tagged files, for example select them all, or deselect them
    inside a selection, move them, copy them, etc...
        This is, I suppose, just the tip of the iceberg.

        Thanks in advance.
