How can I eliminate the 200ms delay before text is redrawn in table-mode?

1 Answer 1


The default settings in table-mode have a built-in delay which makes your text invisible for 200ms. Assuming your computer is fast enough to handle it, you can eliminate this with the following settings:

;; 16ms = 60fps
(setq table-time-before-update 0.016)
(setq table-time-before-reformat 0.016)
