rectpara.el is a system to work on blocks of text layed-out roughly as rectangles. I call these "rectparas" for "rectangular paragraphs". It contains two modes, rectpara-mode (a variant of picture-mode), and a secondary mode, rectpara-edit-mode (a variant of text-mode). The general idea is you select a rectpara you need to change, the system extracts it from the original buffer, and moves it to an edit buffer, then when done you return it to the original location. The system detects automatically if other things need to be moved around to prevent to new version from overwriting some existing text. DOCUMENTATION Some online documentation is available at: http://obsidianrook.com/devnotes/rectpara There are also notes included inside the rectpara.el file. INSTALLATION Quoting from rectpara.el ;; Installation and set-up: ;; Put the rectpara.el file into a location in your load-path, ;; and add something like the following to your ~/.emacs ;; (this uses the single character prefix I prefer, Alt-o): ;; (require 'rectpara) ;; (global-unset-key "\M-o") ;; I want this, facemenu.el can't have it ;; (rectpara-standard-setup (kbd "M-o") ) ## Copyright 2002, 2016 Joseph Brenner ## ## Author: email@example.com ## Keywords:
