At first, I didn’t know how to use it. But I found it very useful to see what is going on in real time by looking at the *Messages*.

I looked up what Spacemacs uses and it seems that multiple cursors is used. Which one was correct?

By the way, I installed Magit the other day. I was worried at that time, too. I asked for advice on the #emacs channel at work. Everyone was using Magit. (Incidentally, it seemed that Magit was also used in Spacemacs.)

There are many things you can do with Emacs. First, I want to use it as an editor. I want to add useful features for coding with emacs.
