Paragraphs

For paragraphs, the keys Alt-] and Alt-[ move forward and back, and the key Alt-H puts point and mark around the current paragraph. Blank lines (containing only spaces and tabs) always separate paragraphs, and so does the form-feed character ^L.

You can control what Epsilon considers a paragraph using two variables.

If the buffer-specific variable indents-separate-paragraphs has a nonzero value, then a paragraph also begins with a nonblank line that starts with a tab or a space.

If the buffer-specific variable tex-paragraphs has a nonzero value, then Epsilon will not consider as part of a paragraph any sequence of lines that each start with at sign or period, if that sequence appears next to a blank line. And lines starting with \begin or \end, or with %, \[, \], or $$, or ending with \\, will also delimit paragraphs.

Standard bindings:

  Alt-], Alt-<Down>  forward-paragraph
 Alt-[, Alt-<Up>  backward-paragraph
 Alt-H  mark-paragraph
