I only treat your special case where you want to exchange the bindings of two key sequences. This is one of the use-cases for key-translation-map. The following code in your init file exchanges the bindings for C-o and C-x o (also in dired-buffers): (define-key key-translation-map (kbd "C-o") (kbd "C-x o")) (define-key key-translation-map (kbd "C-x o") (...

In order to use define-key you should try using the snippet below: (with-eval-after-load 'multiple-cursors-core (define-key mc/keymap (kbd "<ESC>") 'mc/keyboard-quit)) so that the mc/keymap is defined by the file multiple-cursors-core.el/elc before a new keyboard shortcut is added thereto. If the solution above does not work you can assign ...

I have the command fill-paragraph mapped to key <escape> q, it is mapped by default in emacs. In fact, it's mapped to ESC q by default, which is slightly different. ESC is the ascii escape character, while <escape> is the keyboard key at top left of your keyboard (but if you're using Emacs from a text terminal, the terminal probably sends ESC, ...

Local key bindings override global ones. Minor-mode key bindings override local (major mode) key bindings. So do one of these things: Define those keys in the maps of those modes so they invoke the commands you want, other-window and open-line. Define your own minor mode, and define those keys in your minor mode map. And turn on your minor mode and always ...

You should/cannot use the interactive commands isearch-forward-symbol-at-point and query-replace-regexp in that way to define a new function. For an instance isearch-forward-symbol-at-point does not return the symbol at point and query-replace-regexp requires a TO argument if called non-interactively. I think the following Elisp function comes very close ...

This is the key binding that does what you want, out of the box: M-s . C-M-%. The M-s . part starts searching with isearch-forward-symbol-at-point. The C-M-% part starts query-replace-regexp, the current search string as the old text, to search for and replace. (C-M-$ is undefined in isearch-mode-map (and the global map).)

The following works: (global-set-key (kbd "C-v") 'yank) (global-set-key (kbd "C-x") 'kill-region) (define-key input-decode-map (kbd "C-c") (kbd "M-w")) (add-to-list 'term-bind-key-alist '("C-v" . term-paste))

I was able to force this binding by reading the comments on the wiki. Editing the multi-term.el file (if installed via M-x package-install) (located ~/emacs.d/elpa/multi-term-1.2/multi-term.el Remove "C-c" from the term-unbind-key-list: (defcustom term-unbind-key-list '("C-z" "C-x" "C-h" "C-y" "<ESC>") "The key list that will need to be unbind." ...

I swap my option and command keys, so that i can use the key to the left of the space bar as Meta by doing: Open System Preferences Select Keyboard Click "Modifier keys..." button in the bottom right of the window. Swap the values for Option and Command in the popup menus. In the Terminal application: Open Preferences Select Profiles Click Keyboard Check ...

My local-set-key and local-unset-key, used interactively ("M-x ..."), are failing to do exactly what they supposed to, namely to bind or unbind a key for a specific buffer. That's not what they're supposed to do. Can you please point to any documentation or article which caused you to think this? (If it's a documentation problem, it should be fixed.) ...

flyspell-mode only optionally binds flyspell-auto-correct-word to <M-tab> and to C-.. That has been so for a very long time (at least Emacs 23). Switch the binding for <M-tab> off by the customizing the option flyspell-use-meta-tab to off. One way to do so is by clicking the menu item Options->Customize Emacs->Specific Option and typing ...

You should complain to the flyspell maintainers: they are wasting a key sequence. That said, the reason the above is not working is that emacs checks a sequence of keymaps: first the keymap specified by the keymap property (text or overlay), then the keymaps of the enabled minor-modes, then the local keymap that the major mode installs and then the global ...

C-x C-c is for Kill Emacs (save-buffers-kill-terminal). Maybe on other systems you are using emacsclient, then C-x C-c behaves specially if you are using Emacs as a server. If you type it from a client frame, it closes the client connection. Or maybe you run multiple instances of Emacs? To close only one frame use C-x 5 0 or s-w. This command delete ...

Maybe something like this: (defun change-dict-and-ispell () (interactive) (ispell-change-dictionary "en_GB") (ispell-message)) (global-set-key (kbd "C-c s e") 'change-dict-and-ispell)
