Viewing large arglists

Arglists of some functions are quite long and they may not fit on the screen in one line, there are two ways to display them.

First

(setq slime-autodoc-use-multiline-p t)

that’ll make the minbuffer change its height automatically to accommodate several lines of text.

But I find it annoying when the minibuffer jumps up and down, especially when I don’t really want to read the whole arglist.

For this case there’s a binding C-c C-d A (not an easy one), it will redisplay the current arglist on several lines. And its effect is temporary.

You can try it on WRITE function
