emacs mode | Reply
It is nice that the text editor in the competition applet has a vi emulation mode. Perhaps in the next version an emacs emulation mode could be included as well. It would only be necessary to replicate the most basic functionality of emacs, such as moving the cursor around with C^P, C^N, C^F, and C^B, and cutting and pasting text with the mark. I always use emacs for coding, and many other people do as well (I would guess at least as many as those who use vi), so it would be pleasing to have a familiar interface. This suggestion is not crucial, though.

I understand your pain :-) The emacs question has been raised several times. We will definitely look into it for future releases.
