by the way, that's the way emacs with evil-mode handles things right now.

d9j will delete every VISUAL line, and if any of those visual lines are actually collapsed, the entire set of real lines will be killed in the process.

Exciting stuff. now we just need that relative line numbers feature out to be able to shred text in emacs with even more power.

gogo Eli! :)

when deleting 9 lines below with d9j, vim works in terms of visual lines.

so if you have, between those visual lines, a line that represents a collapsed org-mode buffer that has a thousand lines beneath it, it would kill those lines in the process.

That's what I'd expect. I'm killing what I'm seeing. I know that it is a collapsed org-mode buffer bullet. I'm deleting 9 lines below of the current line. I want that org-mode buffer collapsed buffer to be killed to.

If you want to delete the real lines, just expand the bullet.

as I said, you can see that this is hugely powerful.

What about deleting 9 lines? Does deletion work in terms of visual or
logical lines in vim?

In Emacs, as far as I can tell, visual line movement only affects
movement, killing still works by logical lines.

That may mean you’d need relative visual line numbers when you are
going to press a movement (<up>/<down>/C-n/C-p) key, and relative
logical line numbers when you are going to press a kill-line key
(<C-S-backspace> or C-k).
