Resizing Windows

The easiest way to resize Epsilon windows is to use the mouse. But Epsilon also provides various ways to do this via the keyboard.

The Ctrl-X + key runs the command enlarge-window-interactively. After you invoke the command, point to a window border using the arrow keys. The indicated window border moves so as to make the current window larger. You can keep pressing arrow keys to enlarge the window. To switch from enlarging to shrinking, press the minus key. The command Ctrl-X - works like Ctrl-X +, but starts out shrinking instead of enlarging. Whenever the window looks the right size, press <Enter> to leave the command.

You can use several other Epsilon commands to resize windows. The Ctrl-<PgUp> key enlarges the current window vertically, and the Ctrl-<PgDn> key shrinks the current window vertically. They do this by moving the mode line of the window above them up or down, if possible. Otherwise, the current window's mode line moves up or down, as appropriate.

You can also enlarge and shrink windows horizontally. The enlarge-window-horizontally command on Ctrl-X @ enlarges the current window by one column horizontally and the shrink-window-horizontally command shrinks it. They do this by moving the left boundary of the current window left or right, if possible. Otherwise, the current window's right boundary moves, as appropriate. You can use a numeric prefix with these commands to adjust by more than one line or column, or in the opposite direction.

Standard bindings:

  Ctrl-X +  enlarge-window-interactively
 Ctrl-X -  shrink-window-interactively
 Ctrl-<PgUp>, Ctrl-X ^  enlarge-window
 Ctrl-<PgDn>  shrink-window
 Ctrl-X @   enlarge-window-horizontally
   shrink-window-horizontally
