- May 29, 2005Bryan,
What version (or mode) of Emacs are you using? I'm using GNU Emacs 21.3.1,
basic setup, in the *scratch* buffer and doing the below works are it does
in ME, i.e. the C-g does not remove the mark - why am I seeing a different
behavior to you?
In all the time I have used Big Emacs (some years ago now) I have never seen
the behavior you describe, C-g only resets the undo cycle (as it does in ME).
I personally rely on the current behavior...
