Chapter 9: Controlling the Display

Since only part of a large buffer fits in the window, Emacs tries to show a part that is likely to be interesting. Display-control commands allow you to specify which part of the text you want to see, and how to display it.

  • Scrolling Moving text up and down in a window.
  • Horizontal Scrolling Moving text left and right in a window.
  • Follow Mode Follow mode lets two windows scroll as one.
  • Selective Display Hiding lines with lots of indentation.
  • Optional Mode Line Optional mode line display features.
  • Text Display How text characters are normally displayed.
  • Display Vars Information on variables for customizing display.
