Comments on 2019-02-10 Making recover-this-file messages more prominent

The problem may occour whenever visiting a file – not only at emacs startup. Would it be possible to add it to some hook?

OK I tested this:

(defun notify-if-recovering-possible ()
  (show-initial-important-messages "recover-this-file"))
(add-hook 'find-file-hook 'notify-if-recovering-possible)

and it worked. Thanks for this tip, I had the same problem, which is now solved. (Sorry, don’t know how to indent the code)

Hi, and thanks! I corrected your formatting. Notice that your approach is going to show all the recover messages in *Messages* every time you visit a file. Alternatively, you might want to look into after-find-file and patch/advise it, or write your own function which uses e.g. system notifications and put it into find-file-hook.
