Is there a command for Emacs's
follow-mode that will advance the text by a whole 'virtual window' rather than just the height of a column?
Upon reaching the end of column 4, press
next), continue reading the next lines at the start of column one.
When not in
follow-mode I would use
PgDn, but in
follow-mode this only advances the text by the height of one column rather than the full height of the 'virtual window'
Is there a command other than
PgDn that will manage this in
Follow mode is a minor mode that makes two windows, both showing the same buffer, scroll as a single tall virtual window.
PgDn four times
C-v four times
does scroll the column of text 4 times and so the whole virtual window (assuming there are 4 columns in follow-mode).
manually counting the lines tells me that the text has been scrolled forward by 57 lines.
C-u 57 C-v
scrolls the same number of lines
a single command that will, regardless of column height or number of columns, scroll a full 'virtual window'.
