Emacs: Uncolor/Unfontify Region or Buffer
This page shows you how to un-syntax-color a buffer or region.
Normally, you can call
font-lock-mode to turn off syntax coloring.
But if you copied some text from another buffer into a new buffer, turning off
font-lock-mode won't remove existing coloring.
Here's a command that lets removes syntax coloring.
(defun xah-unfontify-region-or-buffer () "Unfontify text selection or buffer." (interactive) (if (region-active-p) (font-lock-unfontify-region (region-beginning) (region-end)) (font-lock-unfontify-buffer)))
