FAQ

  1. I am experiencing the laggy issue on Windows, how to resolve it?

    You need to add this configuration into your init file.

    ;; Don’t compact font caches during GC.
    (setq inhibit-compacting-font-caches t)
    
  2. A ridiculous path is displayed on mode-line while visiting a symbolink.

    It’s the default behaviors of Vanilla Emacs. If you want to display the real names, please put this into your init file.

     (setq find-file-visit-truename t)
    

    If the file is controlled by vc, refer to the documentation of vc-follow-symlinks.

  3. Can I add my mode-line segments myself? How to do that?

    Of course. Just add the segments into global-mode-string.

  4. Why doesn’t change of branch reflect in modeline?

    Actually it’s related to magit and vc-mode.
