C-x 2 On Split-window-below,

1) i like the cursor/point to be in the other window (newly opened) and not in present window.

2) instead of loading in the current-buffer in the other window, i prefer it to be the previously visited file (or) my first entry in (switch-buffer) (or) C-x b list

3) Does elisp support hooks for methods (split-window-below hook)?


I have the similar need, but for C-x 3 (split-window-right):

(defun chunyang-split-window-right ()
  (select-window (split-window-right))
  (switch-to-buffer (other-buffer)))

    Seems like you beat me to it :) Can I suggest a small change? Replace ``` (split-window-right) (other-window 1) ``` with ``` (select-window (split-window-right)) ``` – bmag Mar 15 '15 at 8:01
  • @bmag Thanks for suggestion. I didn't notice the return value of (split-window-right) and the (select-window) function. – xuchunyang Mar 15 '15 at 8:15
