Skip Quoted Feature

Leave some context visible

1. Support

Since: NeoMutt 2016-03-28

Dependencies: None

2. Introduction

When viewing an email, the <skip-to-quoted>function (by default the S key) will scroll past any email headers or quoted text. Sometimes, a little context is useful.

By setting the $skip_quoted_offset variable, you can select how much of the quoted text is left visible.

3. Variables

Table 33.1. Skip-Quoted Variables

Name Type Default
skip_quoted_offset number 0

4. neomuttrc

# Example NeoMutt config file for the skip-quoted feature.

# The 'S' (skip-quoted) command scrolls the pager past the quoted text (usually
# indented with '> '. Setting 'skip_quoted_offset' leaves some lines of quoted
# text on screen for context.

# Show three quoted lines before the reply
set skip_quoted_offset = 3

# vim: syntax=neomuttrc
