In fact, with paragraph-oriented text, moving to the beginning or end of the line is relatively unimportant, so I haven't really missed the capability. I'm not really clear on the details of their standard behaviour in org-mode now, but I guess something that might make sense (to a user) would be for them to behave in an org-specific way when they are somewhere where this makes sense, but then to fall back to their previous definition otherwise. I'm unclear on exactly how fixed the behaviour of visual line mode is - it hasn't yet appeared in an emacs release, so I guess it might still change. In the longer term, I imagine people will start wanting support for variable width fonts (visual line mode at last makes these usable in emacs)!! Thanks again for all your efforts. -- Mike
