9.1 Commands to Manually Cite, Recite, and Uncite

Probably the three most common post-yank formatting operations that you will perform will be the manual citing, reciting, and unciting of regions of text in the reply buffer. Often you may want to recite a paragraph to use a nickname, or manually cite a message when setting sc-cite-region-limit to nil. The following commands perform these functions on the region of text between ‘point’ and ‘mark’. Each of them sets the undo boundary before modifying the region so that the command can be undone in the standard Emacs way.

Here is the list of Supercite citing commands:

sc-cite-region (C-c C-p c)
This command cites each line in the region of text by interpreting the selected frame from sc-cite-frame-alist, or the default citing frame sc-default-cite-frame. It runs the hook sc-pre-cite-hook before interpreting the frame. With an optional universal argument (C-u), it temporarily sets sc-confirm-always-p to t so you can confirm the attribution string for a single manual citing. See Configuring the Citation Engine.


sc-uncite-region (C-c C-p u)
This command removes any citation strings from the beginning of each cited line in the region by interpreting the selected frame from sc-uncite-frame-alist, or the default unciting frame sc-default-uncite-frame. It runs the hook sc-pre-uncite-hook before interpreting the frame. See Configuring the Citation Engine.


sc-recite-region (C-c C-p r)
This command recites each line the region by interpreting the selected frame from sc-recite-frame-alist, or the default reciting frame sc-default-recite-frame. It runs the hook sc-pre-recite-hook before interpreting the frame. See Configuring the Citation Engine.

Supercite will always ask you to confirm the attribution when reciting a region, regardless of the value of sc-confirm-always-p.
