T.5.2 Refill Mode

Refill minor mode provides support for keeping paragraphs filled as you type or modify them in other ways. It provides an effect similar to typical word processor behavior. This works by running a paragraph-filling command at suitable times.

When you are typing text, only characters which normally trigger auto filling, like the space character, will trigger refilling. This is to avoid making it too slow. Apart from self-inserting characters, other commands which modify the text cause refilling.

The current implementation is preliminary and probably not robust. We expect to improve on it.

To toggle the use of Refill mode in the current buffer, type M-x refill-mode.
