When I KEY_DOWN, it invokes next-line from simple.el

This next-line moves to the same line, if that line spans multiple lines.

I don't want this to happen.

I want to move to the next logical line;)

I always had it like this before and I haven't changed my config, so something must've changed here?

Just call next-logical-line:

This is identical to next-line, except that it always moves by logical lines instead of visual lines, ignoring the value of the variable line-move-visual.

  • Indeed, but is it just a matter of binding KEY_DOWN to this? I think I had some issues when I did that. Feb 14 at 19:11
  • @JasonHunter What issues?
