Spacemacs (Emacs) Fonts And Faces Notes
** 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:
SPC u C-x =
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:
M-x what-cursor-position C-u RET
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)
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.
So, if you're using an Emacs setup that doesn't rebind the key, the command is:
C-u C-x =
** Viewing Font Faces
I'm setup to use helm. To see all the font faces and what they look like use:
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.
