Whenever I open an org file, I have to activate auto-fill-mode and go through every signle line that I need to read and press RET to get a filled paragraph. Is there any way to globally set auto-fill-mode and applied to all the paragraphs in an org file while opening the file?

Best.

If you want to fill all the lines in a region, use the command M-x fill-region. To mark the entire buffer (so the region includes the entire file), use the command M-x mark-whole-buffer, which is also bound to the keybinding C-x h.

If you only want to temporarily wrap the lines for easier reading, you can use visual-line-mode, combined with visual-fill-column (available as a package on MELPA) to visually wrap the lines without actually adding linebreaks to your file.

  • Thanks, I did as you said and I still get line with an right-arrow on the edge of emacs windows which in case of clicking on it will scroll horizontally to the right showing the rest of the line and hiding the begining of the line. – nima May 23 at 17:59
  • I want something like the normal emacs buffer which places curved arrows at the end of the line. – nima May 23 at 18:02
