Subject: [PATCH] Add mode for automatically unhiding emphasis markers in the current region
Date: Mon, 1 Jun 2020 16:14:17 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAGEgU=j+UJoWwoRKChkVxN5dmwbD4YaNTWdLS6Qgj57osZLRJA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

* lisp/org.el:
(org-auto-emphasis-unhide-at-point): Parameter that controls the
behavior of Org Auto Emphasis mode.  It can be one of the values nil, t, and
'right-edge, and works similarly to the parameter
`prettify-symbols-unprettify-at-point' for `prettify-symbols-mode'.
(org-do-emphasis-faces): When hiding emphasis markers, add additional
text properties 'org-emph-start and org-emph-end to the emphasized
(org-auto-emphasis--current-region-bounds): Local variable containing
the bounds of the region whose emphasis markers are currently
(org-auto-emphasis--get-prop-as-list): Helper function that returns
Org Auto Emphasis properties as a list.
(org-auto-emphasis--post-command-hook): Function added to
`post-command-hook' that rehides emphasis markers for the previous
region and unhides emphasis marks for the current region.
(org-auto-emphasis-mode): Toggles Org Auto Emphasis mode.  Can be
added to `org-mode-hook' to be enabled for all org-mode files.

This code was adapted from prettify-symbols-mode in prog-mode.el

request for the papers to assign@gnu.org, but have not yet received a
