I am viewing a large file (512 MB) with vlf-mode. How can I delete from a point of the file to the end?

The standard approach of selecting the text from a point to the end and then deleting it does not work. In fact, the file is subdivided in many sub buffers, 512 in my case, and so I am not able to extend the selection between these sub buffers.

UPDATE: Actually, if I try to delete a single character and then I save the file, nothing will be saved! So I have got even a bigger problem

  • Your question doesn't seem too clear, particularly given the last paragraph. Try to provide a step-by-step recipe to reproduce the problem, starting with emacs -Q (no init file). – Drew Aug 28 '18 at 4:37
  • Ok I will do it, I am trying to figuring out how to enable vlf when launching emacs with emacs -Q, it is listed as installed but I can't use it – Nisba Aug 28 '18 at 14:15
