#+TITLE: Valign.el This package provides visual alignment for Org Mode, Markdown and table.el tables on GUI Emacs. It can properly align tables containing variable-pitch font, CJK characters and images. Meanwhile, the text-based alignment generated by Org mode (or Markdown mode) is left untouched. To use this package, load it and add ~valign-mode~ to ~org-mode-hook~ or ~markdown-mode-hook~: #+begin_src emacs-lisp (add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'valign-mode) #+end_src [[./default.png]] [[./table.el.png]] *Know problems:* - Hidden links in markdown still occupy the full length of the link, because it uses character composition which we don’t support now. - Rendering large tables (≥100 lines) is laggy. *Note:* For table.el tables to work with valign, each cell has to have at least one space on the right and no space on the left. You can use [[https://github.com/casouri/ftable][ftable.el]] to auto-layout the table for you. * Install with quelpa Firmin Martin kindly provided this snippet: #+begin_src emacs-lisp (use-package valign :quelpa (valign :fetcher github :repo "casouri/valign") :ensure t :config (add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'valign-mode)) #+end_src * Customization Set ~valign-fancy-bar~ to ~non-nil~: [[./fancy-bar.png]] This only affects Org Mode and Markdown tables. * If function advice makes you itch ~valign-mode~ adds advice and doesn’t remove them even if you close ~valign-mode~ because function advice is global and ~valign-mode~ is local. If you want to remove the advice, use ~valign-remove-advice~. If you run this while some buffer still has ~valign-mode~ on, they break.
