I have disabled electric indent mode, as specified here, but when yanking text, indenting is still performed.

I am yanking text into an html buffer, and I do not want any change whatsoever to be applied to the yanked text. I want it as-is, no indentation, no nothing.

How can I achieve this? I am running:

GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.18.9) of 2016-04-17 on lgw01-04, modified by Debian

  • Does it happen in a session started with emacs -q? electric-indent-mode is for indentation as you type, afaik there is no indentation when yanking, by default.

  • Can't reproduce. What is the major-mode exactly? Commented Oct 13, 2016 at 17:50
  • Some popular Emacs configurations, i.e., prelude, have this feature enabled. Try to reproduce the problem in emacs -Q.
