MoveText (2.0.8)

MoveText allows you to move the current line using M-up / M-down (or any other bindings you choose) if a region is marked, it will move the region instead.

Using the prefix arg (C-u number or META number) will predetermine how many lines to move.

Install from MELPA (or MELPA stable)

M-x package-install move-text <RETURN>

If you want to use the default bindings, add the following to .emacs anywhere after (package-initialize):


This sets the keyboard shortcuts:

  • Meta-up move-text-up (line or active region)
  • Meta-down move-text-down (line or active region)


You can’t perform that action at this time.
