When I use emacs 24.3.1 and run
Then M-< followed by M-x
global-hl-line-mode and M-x
describe-face, emacs asks me
Describe face (default `font-lock-comment-delimiter-face'):
But when I use 26.1 and run
and run exactly the same commands, emacs asks me
Describe face (default ‘hl-line’):
I have to turn
hl-line off to get the name of the point's face. What causes this difference and is there a way to get the old behaviour back?
(get-char-property (point) 'face)
hl-line in 26.1, but returns the actual face in 24.3.1.
