Alter Aeon FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
FAQ 12.4 - How do I use the first part of the editor? (enter mode)
When you first enter the editor, your prompt will turn into a ']'
(right bracket). This is called "enter mode", where you can enter the
raw text you want in your description. Anything you enter here will
be what your description says, do not type any editing commands. If
you need to use an edit command while you're still in enter mode, you can
simply add a '/' (forward slash) before the command. As in the examples:
Would tell the editor to format ALL of your post at 72 character width.
Would show you what you've written so far, with line numbers before each
You don't have to use the slash character to send commands while you're in
enter mode, you will automatically enter edit mode after you're finished
typing. You can tell the mud you're done by typing the '@' (at sign) symbol.
Your prompt will turn into "edit>", and you will move into the next section!
