If I have
text1 text2, I yank
yw then I highlight
vw and paste overwrite that text with
p, my kill ring now has
text2. I'd prefer if
text2 wasn't added to my kill ring because next time I paste text, Emacs will paste
text2 which I inadvertently copied.
Same question for
x (which deletes 1 character), the deleted character goes into my kill ring.
C-p to cycle through the kill ring isn't ideal. I paste the text again, the over written text is continually added onto the kill ring leading to more
C-p presses to get the original text. Ideally I'm hoping to disable or redefine p when over writing text to not add to the kill ring
