Syntax-aware navigation, keyboard macros, sleeping Emacs and interactive functions

Posted on July 1, 2019 by Content AND Presentation Feed

A few days ago I had an interesting Emacs-related problem. I wanted to record and use a keyboard macro which would find a certain TeX one-parameter macro (say, \todo) and comment it out. The tricky part was that it was not at all guaranteed that this macro would be on a line on its own, so “finding the string \todo, going to the beginning of the line and inserting a percent character” won’t work.

Defining custom TikZ fill patterns

Posted on June 9, 2019 by Content AND Presentation Feed

Some time ago I had a need to define my own filling pattern in TikZ. It turned out to be quite simple, although I had to learn a few things. While the manual (as usual) does a pretty good job at teaching that, I felt that the explanation was a bit too short in one place, and hence this blog post.
