Spacemacs (Emacs) Fonts And Faces Notes

TODO: Pull subtitle into page object

** View Details Of The Current Letter

The way to see details of the character under the current point is to use `what-cursor-position` with the universtal prefix argument.

On Spacemacs the command is:

code_start_default_section code_end_default_section

When the list comes up, you can select a face and hit RET to view the settings for it and then select the `customize this face` link to change it.

** Changing Font Faces

For some reason in my setup I can't remove a property (e.g. Foreground or Background color) from a face. It won't save. I have to replace it to get it to stay.

Debugging Stuff

I'm moving stuff around right now. All this below is helping me figure out where to put stuff

** View Details Of The Current Letter

The way to see details of the character under the
current point is to use `what-cursor-position`
with the universtal prefix argument.

-- p

On Spacemacs the command is:

-- code/

SPC
  u
  C-x
  =

-- /code

-- p

You can also use `helm-M-x` which is the default `M-x`
for me, but also mapped to `SPC SPC`. Using it, you
can add the universal argument towards the end of
the command like:

-- code/

M-x
  what-cursor-position
  C-u
  RET

-- /code

-- p

And you don't have to type all of `what-cursor-position`
just enough so that it's the first highlight in the
helm list. Just make sure to hit `C-u` before hitting 
RET (return)

-- p

In default Emacs, the universal argument is set
with `C-u` instead of `SPC u`, but Spacemacs rebinds
it so it can use `C-u` as scroll up like Vim does.

-- p

So, if you're using an Emacs setup that doesn't
rebind the key, the command is:

-- code/

C-u C-x =

-- /code

-- p

** Viewing Font Faces

-- p

I'm setup to use helm. To see all the font faces and
what they look like use:

-- code/

M-x spacemacs/helm-faces

-- /code

-- p

When the list comes up, you can select a face and
hit RET to view the settings for it and then
select the `customize this face` link to change it.
