Quick Zoom Text in Emacs
oh hey i fixed that announcement code better than i thought
forgot to set an explicit announcement and it just made something up
it'll have my job soon
@randomgeek I think I need an Emacs function that makes my Emacs work like "person-x's favourite editor" during a joint editing session.
I think I'm the only Emacs user in my office environment. 😃
@sohkamyung I've had a similar wish over the years with Vim. Fortunately I have one coworker who uses Emacs, so it's less urgent.
Given sufficient knowledge of ELisp and person-x's preferences, one could probably fake something up.
I'm also looking at stuff like the Doom themes for a less crusty aesthetic.
Ohhh.. I thought this was going to be an article about Avy or Ace jump. You know.. "zooming" to text you can see on your screen, without reaching for the mouse.
I wonder why these shortcuts are prefixed by C-x. It's perfectly safe to bind them directly to C--, C-=, C-0 just like in a web browser.
@psyklax I'm still learning Emacs, so that was a specific bit related to the scenario described in the post.
My first guess is that they went with these bindings because Emacs users have already built up `C-x` muscle memory for opening / saving files etc.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
