typedef is essential in metaprogramming, i. e. when you implement template classes that are supposed to fulfil certain criteria. This allows generic algorithms to specify certain dependant types in their implementation. (most notably, but not only, return types)

Other than that, typedefs and using-declarations[^] can be used to imrpove readability. But these mechanisms should not be overused: I prefer to be able to read where a symbol is coming from rather than a name that may be a local symbol or not.

That said, modern, language-sensitve text editors can show you what's behind a name very easily, maybe even in a tooltip. (and if yours doesn't, go look for a plugin that does)
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
