Re: [O] Org-mode reinvented?

2015-10-26 Thread Aldric Giacomoni
As someone who came to emacs and org-mode after using Markdown on Github
for quite a while as "the default readme format", it's a consolation to
find that Github supports "pretty" formatting of org-mode:

Org-mode is significantly more powerful and nicer than markdown. I think
that is part of its problem. Look at Daniel's TODO list on the
implementation of org-mode syntax for Sublime Text:

Another way of looking at it is that markdown is just a subset of org-mode
anyway... :)

Re: [O] Feature request: creating separate tables on same rows

I did -want- to do that.

 Then I misunderstood you. I thought you wanted to create tables side

 buffer side by side, with the additional features I mentioned.

   I'd like to be able to create multiple tables on the same rows,
   | Group | Name | | Something | Else |
   |--+--| |-+- --|
   | 1 | foo | | Yes | No |
   |--+--| |-+---|
   This might be based on a pretty fundamental misunderstanding of
  how to
   use tables, org-mode and emacs, but I would find it useful to be
   to compare tables and making changes easily without scrolling too
   Someone on #emacs pointed me towards clone-indirect-buffer, which
   works for my purposes, but I figured I'd ask here and ask all you
   experts if this idea is reasonable or crazy-pants.

Understood, thank you very much for explaining it :)

 I agree, in such cases I use AucTeX directly. You can use orgtbl-mode in
 your tex file to build the main data of the table in LaTeX in Org form,
 check: (info (org) A LaTeX example). Then add your multi-columns with:


 If you want multi-rows:

 A complete example, from a recent paper I was working on:
