I was using dumb-jump to get back from jump definition's location. I started to get following message:

‘dumb-jump-back’ is an obsolete command (as of 2020-06-26); 
‘dumb-jump-back’ has been obsoleted by ‘xref-pop-marker-stack’.

When I do elpy-goto-definition jump definition's line is not highlighted, so if possible, I want same behavior when I jump back.

Instead of ‘dumb-jump-back’ , when I use xref-pop-marker-stack it jumps back but it highlights the jumped line, is it possible to prevent the highlighting?

You can customize xref-after-return-hook and remove xref-pulse-momentarily from it.

  • How can I do that?
