 configuration is stored in a text file: on Unix-like OSes, the config file is
 at ``~/.config/beets/config.yaml``; on Windows, it's at
 ``%APPDATA%\beets\config.yaml``. Create and edit the appropriate file with your
-favorite text editor. This file will start out empty, but here's good place to

+favorite text editor. (You may need to create the enclosing directories also.)
+The file will start out empty, but here's good place to start::
 
     directory: ~/music

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
