3.10: Text Selections

Q3.10.1: How can I turn off or change highlighted selections?

The zmacs mode allows for what some might call gratuitous highlighting for selected regions (either by setting mark or by using the mouse). This is the default behavior. To turn off, add the following line to your init.el file:

(setq zmacs-regions nil)

You can also change this with Customize. Select from the Options menu Advanced (Customize)->Emacs->Editing->Basics->Zmacs Regions or type M-x customize RET editing-basics RET.

To change the face for selection, look at Options->Customize on the menubar.
