I'm so close to getting two 80-char vertical buffers side by side on a 1366px wide monitor. I've got a cool frame font,
(set-frame-font (font-spec :family "Monkey" :size 20 :antialias nil))
I've removed my scrollbars, set my fringe to 1px width, and my line numbers to dynamic.
I'm one column away from editing heaven. The thing is, my eyes can't handle the tiny fonts anymore, so I can't go down to size 19. I tried setting 19.5, but it just made the font larger.
How can I set a fractional font size in Emacs?
- Ubuntu 14.04 amd64
- Emacs 24.3.1, installed from package
M-g M-g 123 RET. Most people have the current line in the mode line anyway. That's just my opinion: I don't miss them. Maybe that might help you get another couple columns.
