Hi Benno,

```
```Thanks for the new features!
```
I'm guessing you are referring to --bookstyle. But which other new feature(s) are you happy with?
```
```
It was a general congratulation message, but I am indeed happy with --bookstyle; I will use Alt+Insert; more colors is quite a bonus.
```
```
I had also missed ^T then |<cmd> from an earlier release, for which I have a remark: when doing this while no text is selected, I would expect the result to be inserted in the file, not to replace the whole file (which seems crazy to me). I would use it for instance to check the results of numerical computations from within a TeX file, by copy-pasting the TeX code and calling a homegrown script.
```
```
```Alt+Insert shows a white-on-red error message "Unknown sequence".
```
```What does M-V M-Ins put in an empty buffer?  (You would probably
need to type: Esc V M-Ins.)
```
```
This:

```What terminal are you using?

urxvt

```With what kind of settings?

Yes, that is the disadvantage of experienced users: when something is added or changed in the help lines, they will not see it. :|
```
:-)

```
```(To alleviate this a bit, M-X was made to work in every menu.)
```
```
Ah yes, I will use that.

Thanks,
Sébastien.
