Emacs tips

Mote ideas:

  • LinkdMode Paired with "deft"?

  • iMenu: M-x imenu or:
    (add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'imenu-add-menubar-index)
    Start typing or use TAB completion to find function defintions. See imenuMode

  • Predictive Mode

  • Record, play, re-play:
    (global-set-key [f10] 'start-kbd-macro)
    (global-set-key [f11] 'end-kbd-macro)
    (global-set-key [f12] 'call-last-kbd-macro)

  • Selective display:
    M-1 C-x $ to activate
    C-x $ to go back
    Or create shortcuts:

    (defun jao-toggle-selective-display () (interactive) (set-selective-display (if selective-display nil 1))) (global-set-key [f1] 'jao-toggle-selective-display)

      (setq cua-enable-cua-keys nil) (setq cua-highlight-region-shift-only t) ;; no transient mark mode (setq cua-toggle-set-mark nil) ;; original set-mark behavior, i.e. no transient-mark-mode (cua-mode)
