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.)


What terminal are you using?

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.
