An editor where the paper moves up/down instead of the cursor

2010-03-24

In my editor I spend too much time looking for the cursor; up, down, left, right.

Why not have the cursor in the same line, like 30% from the top, and instead move the text behind it?

This will make it possible to always write the code/text at the most comfortable place.

Sometimes one wants to write at the top (see code below) or vice verse and one could move the cursor to a new base position then.

(Finding the cursor is easier with a highlighted line where the cursor is.)

    Jag tycker du ska prova utveckla en sån där editor och testa. Min övertygelse är att du kommer att få börja leta efter ALL TEXT med ögonen istället.

    En smartare lösning (som borde finnas i alla editorer) är raden med cursern är highlightad.

    Jo men självklart kan du göra det i emacs…och självklart kan du välja hur mycket du vill att cursern ska blinka ;)
