I used to have emacs set up the way I liked it until I lost my emacs configuration file.
How do I customize emacs so that it supports CTRL+x,c,v keys as in windows (cut, copy paste) and also when you paste, the highlighted region is replaced?
I'd also like the delete key to behave so that if a region is highlighted it will delete the region. It currently just deletes the character to the right cursor.
You can use CUA mode for CTRL+x,c,v. - http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/CuaMode
Write in your .emacs:
(cua-mode t) (setq cua-auto-tabify-rectangles nil) ;; Don't tabify after rectangle commands (transient-mark-mode 1) ;; No region when it is not highlighted (setq cua-keep-region-after-copy t)
If you use Emacs 23.1 and higher, cua by default in emacs.
