I love centered-cursor-mode. It keeps my cursor in the center of the screen always.

However, on rare occasions, I need to use C-l recenter-top-bottom to "scroll" in order to view text lower than the center position allows.

In the meantime, I am forced to disable centered-cursor-mode and than use recenter-top-bottom, but I'd really prefer if there was a way to make C-l override centered-cursor-mode


Just customize option ccm-ignored-commands, adding recenter-top-bottom to the list of commands that centered-cursor-mode lets happen without kicking in afterward.

How I found this:

I never heard of centered-cursor-mode. I followed your link, downloaded the source file, and looked through its options, to start with. Saw this option, tried it.
