Emacs is great and sucks too.

  • Use CUA mode
emacs configuration
This common config should work well in both terminal and UI:

NOTE that you need some other things to be configured properly:

  • the terminal must use a light light blue background since it will be carried over into [emacs -nw]
  • the terminal must have 256-color support; set this in .bashrc:
export TERM=xterm-256color
  • Make sure you check out undo support via [ctrl-x u]
