org-delete-char) in an Emacs org file deletes the word following the cursor. I would like to delete the extra space left also without having to use
DEL. I.e. one action to delete word and extra space.
Despite that's not the documented behavior for
org-delete-char which deletes only chars and no words adding spaces only inside table cells, you could achieve what you want doing either:
- defining a command which kills the next character if matchs
[:space:]and rebinding it to C-d
org-delete-char(vid. advising functions)
org-delete-char implementation, taking a simplistic approach of just deleting the next blank character doesn't look like a good idea.
