I am writing latex code with AUCTEX. I very often highlight text in bold or italics.
For instance, AUCTEX comes with the command
C-c C-f C-e, wich can be used to emphasize text in an active marked region. That is, it would replace the marked text
I used Aquamacs before, where I was able to hold the
CMD key, and then press
e within some reasonable time (a few seconds). Then the mode line would show that the sequence
C-c C-f C-e was entered, and perform the correct command.
I switched to Gnu Emacs on MacOS recently, where this seems not to work as desired anymore. Concretely, it works only if I hold CMD, and then
e extremely quickly (so quickly that I fail 50% of my attempts).
C-c, then releasing all keys, then
C-f, releasing all, then
C-e does not work either. Instead, the command bound to
C-f is executed, ignoring the prior
Is this expected behavior of emacs?
The only non-standard keyboard configuration in my
.emacs is that I have re-bound the key
C-f for convenience as follows:
(global-set-key (kbd "C-f") 'isearch-forward) (define-key isearch-mode-map "\C-f" 'isearch-repeat-forward)
However, I think this should not matter, provided that I have pressed
C-c immediately before
I have tried to find a way to configure emacs to behave as described above for Aquamacs, but only found key chords, which seems to be something else. Thanks in advance for any help.
