To remember a region of text, use the universal prefix. C-u M-x remember displays a *Remember* buffer with the region as the initial contents.
As a simple beginning, you can start by using the Text File backend, keeping your ~/.emacs.d/notes file in outline-mode format, with a final entry called ‘* Raw data’. Remembered data will be added to the end of the file. Every so often, you can move the data that gets appended there into other files, or reorganize your document.
You can also store remembered data in other backends. See Backends.
Here is one way to map the remember functions in your init file (see The Emacs Initialization File) to very accessible keystrokes facilities using the mode:
(define-key global-map (kbd "<f9> r") 'remember) (define-key global-map (kbd "<f9> R") 'remember-region)
By default, remember uses the first annotation returned by
remember-annotation-functions. To include all of the annotations,
remember-run-all-annotation-functions-flag to a
nilmeans use all annotations returned by
You can write custom functions that use a different set of remember-annotation-functions. For example:
(defun my/remember-with-filename () "Always use the filename." (interactive) (let ((remember-annotation-functions '(buffer-file-name))) (call-interactively 'remember)))
remember-notes command creates a notes buffer that

remember-notes-buffer-name specifies the name of the
