When I try enter commands via
C-x, it takes 1-2 seconds until the echo area shows this prefix key, as
C-x-. I'm quite new to Emacs, so this often confuses me, and I get lost.
ESC key acts similar to this, so when I try to escape out of some half-entered command, I often end up looping pressing
ESC and again after 1-2 second I see
ESC- in the echo area.
Is there a way to decrease the time it takes to show a reaction in the echo area, am I doing something wrong, or is this somehow intended?
