  • 09:44 UTC (new) (history) 2021-02-27 Visible bell in Emacs . . . . mbork Emacs has this habit of beeping when something goes wrong (or when the user presses C-g). Frankly, this is quite useful, since it is an instant feedback, but there are times when I don’t want that behavior.



  • 09:00 UTC (new) (history) 2021-02-20 Using keyboard macros to emulate query replace . . . . mbork A few days ago, however, I needed to do something I consider really blogworthy, even though the tip I’m going to share today is (surprise, surprise!) very Emacs-centric. I was editing a paper which used italics (with the \emph LaTeX macro) really a lot (more than 100 times). Very many (but not all) of its occurrences were to be changed to quotes, so that e.g. \emph{petrichor} should be changed to ,,petrichor’’ etc.


  • 15:44 UTC (new) (history) 2021-02-13 Copying to clipboard with single spaces . . . . mbork I sometimes need to transfer some text from Emacs to another program, like a web broswer or terminal. A few weeks ago I thought that it would be nice if I could somehow transform that text – mu use-case is changing double spaces (which I habitually put after every sentence, so that I can use Emacs’ sentence-aware commands) to single spaces (which is what most people expect, and some people treat as the only correct option).
