That was not quite correct, however. These are the defining lines: ;; These are referenced in the default calendar-date-echo-text. (define-key map [down-mouse-3] (easy-menu-binding cal-menu-context-mouse-menu)) (define-key map [down-mouse-2] (easy-menu-binding cal-menu-global-mouse-menu)) So the calendar provides a global (mouse-2) and a context menu (mouse-3). Seems both are not really useful for `org-read-date'. Michael.

Hello, selecting a date from within `org-read-date' from the calendar works with mouse-1, but not with mouse-2 (with latest Emacs master and my settings loaded at least). The code seems to intend that it also works with mouse-2, but it fails. I don't prefer mouse-2, but it would be good to support it I think, since "clicking" in Emacs is with mouse-2 historically, breaking that might cause inconvenience. Why it doesn't work? Oh, that's because calendar already binds down-mouse-2 to pop-up a menu (see definition of `calendar-mode-map'). So when we would add the following line to `org-read-date' (it's obvious to where and I'm too lazy to create a patch now): + (org-defkey map [down-mouse-2] nil) it works as expected for me. Nothing is lost since the original popup-menu for the calendar is still being bound to down-mouse-3 (the more expected key for such a menu in my opinion, at least 2021). So please consider to add the above line to the defun of `org-read-date'. Regards, Michael.

Thanks. But as far as I recall, that's what I already tried and it didn't help. As far as I understand, the logging is implemented in `org-auto-repeat-maybe', and the thing I do not want is caused by the `org-add-log-setup' call, and that is done unconditionally unless `org-log-repeat's value is nil. Which I don't want because this would also disable the "LAST_REPEAT" property setting. Thanks, Michael.
Hello, for some entries I use the logrepeat feature (enabled by setting the LOGGING property of the entry). I get a :LAST_REPEAT: property that I (always) want, and also a complete log I do not (always) want, in the form of a growing list of - State "DONE" from "XYZ" [2021-01-19 Di 12:01] style entries that I often "garbage collect" manually. Is there a way to get only the :LAST_REPEAT: prop logged, without the ever-growing list? If not, please consider as "wishlist" request. TIA, Michael.

Hmm, seems my code has come to the same conclusion and magically started working, without any change, AFAICT. Strange, dunno how, but your answer somehow helped. Quantum physics, probably. I hope it remains so... Thanks, Michael.
Hi, I have a problem with my appt.el replacement I develop. When debugging, I found that `org-agenda-get-timestamps' does, depending on the position of the SCHEDULED spec, do return a timestamp when an entry is formatted like this: ** APPT 10:40 Xyz :PROPERTIES: :ID: 1d313f9a-3044-4c23-9278-422646ec9063 :END: SCHEDULED: <2020-11-08 So +1d> but not when formatted like this: ** APPT 10:40 Xyz SCHEDULED: <2020-11-08 So +1d> :PROPERTIES: :ID: 1d313f9a-3044-4c23-9278-422646ec9063 :END: although the latter form is, AFAICT, recommended, and at least it's what I get when creating ids automatically with (org-id-get-create). No timestamp, and my appointments don't work (bad). Has anybody any insight into this matter? TIA, Michael.

I wrote: > With diary, I can use arbitrary Lisp expressions to generate dates, and > those expressions can also return a string to use as non-nil return > value to generate non-constant headlines including certain numbers for > example. [...] My solution so far: I've set up my `org-capture-templates' so that when I hit T (instead of t) I am prompted for time+headline and optionally a number of days for a reminder, and, for example, when I enter "21:00 Test" and a "2" I get an entry like | ** TODO Special entry: "21:00 Test" | %%(diary-remind |'(and | (dg-it-is "[2020-10-31 Sa]") | "TODO 21:00 Test") |2) `dg-it-is' is a function that tests whether "it is" the given date specified as an inactive org time stamp. The nice thing about this is that org recognizes the stamp and I can click on it with the mouse to change it etc. And I can freely edit the whole expression. The entry gets listed in the agenda correctly (also the reminder) and I get two appt.el appointments (or rather, my substitution for it). Cons: The headline is ignored, I use a dummy headline. I don't have emacs-lisp bindings to edit the expression in the Capture or Org buffer, so if I want something more complicated I probably need to use *scratch* as intermediate step (I tried to use a source block, but then the %%() expression is not recognized any more, and the time stamps are not clickable any more). And for whatever reason, the agenda doesn't fontify the word "TODO". If anyone has ideas for improvements, I'm curious! Regards, Michael.

Thanks for the insights, Kyle. Do you know whether I can assume that one of those is always present (org-marker probably, since org-hd-marker is not always present) when examining the result of `org-agenda-get-day-entries'?

I see that creating an id involves slightly more than adding the property - see the `org-id-add-location' call in `org-id-get'. Calling the higher level `org-id-get' or the like in a %() spec in a template fails however, since when it's called a temp buffer not associated with a file is current. And then I'm also not sure if the above is always secure when something else in the template spec wants to add a (different) property. Do you know? Thanks, Michael.
Hello, is it possible to tweak `org-capture-templates' entries so that the creation of an org id for an org entry created with `org-capture' is forced? TIA, Michael.
Hello, I had a hard time to debug some problem with the expansion of some capture template because org catched the error even when I had set `debug-on-error'. Would it be possible to make some functions, e.g. `org-eval' in my case (probably some more?), use `condition-case-unless-debug' instead of `condition-case'? Thanks, Michael.
Hello, what's the difference between org-marker and org-hd-marker markers? What does "hd" stand for? TIA, Michael.

But it would be nicer if I could specify my dates in only one file. Jumping around in my org file + my emacs init file is what I used to do.

This is bad. Why is that? Can it be changed? When dealing with complicated date rules it can likely happen that a diary sexp doesn't fit into one line. Regards, Michael.
Robert Pluim writes: > OK. Thatʼs as far as my org-hacking knowledge goes, so perhaps someone > else here has an idea of the right way to invoke "tell me what heading > Iʼm in, as a string". The situation is actually like this: the empty string issue doesn't happen with time stamps <%%(...)>, this always uses the correct headline. Seems %%() entries are expected to return a string OTOH since the headline seems to be ignored. I guess this is reasonable. Dunno if there is something to change here at all in the code. Ok, the other thing: broken time stamps with line breaks: > You've lost me. Can you show me an example? The difference here is only a line break: This doesn't work: | ** APPT 17:00 Test | SCHEDULED: <%%(and (or (diary-date 03 09 2020) |(diary-date 04 09 2020)))> But this works: | ** APPT 17:00 Test | SCHEDULED: <%%(and (or (diary-date 03 09 2020) (diary-date 04 09 2020)))> Michael.

I want to stick to diary sexp expressions for some complicated dates. I have already extended the diary language to fit my needs to specify the dates of garbage collection here. That looks like this: #+begin_src emacs-lisp (dg-let-date (dg-tomorrow) (dg-except-for* (and (dg-friday-p) (cl-evenp (dg-iso-week))) (cl-some #'dg-holiday-p (dg-the-days-between (dg-days-before 2))) +1)) #+end_src It means: warn me one day before garbage collection happens, and that is: every Friday in any week with even week number, unless it has been a holiday up to two days before that, then they collect one day later. I guess I always want Lisp to specify something like this. Michael.

Hi, I am mainly using the org agenda for day planning. But there is a functionality I seem to miss I know from diary: With diary, I can use arbitrary Lisp expressions to generate dates, and those expressions can also return a string to use as non-nil return value to generate non-constant headlines including certain numbers for example. I can use that to implement when the next garbage collection will come (rules for that are complicated since there are exceptions etc), add reminders for certain important stuff, etc. I would like to use my org file to specify those things instead of maintaining a second file (the diary file). But AFAIK the dynamically created headline part is tricky: what appears in the agenda is always the org headline as it appears in the file, right? Or do I miss something? How to other people deal with things like...garbage collection? TIA, Michael.
Ihor Radchenko writes: > You can try M-x org-submit-bug-report ;) > Then it becomes clear that you are in the right place already. Thanks! I didn't know about this command - actually I had searched for it but didn't find it because I had searched for something named "report-org-bug" (analogue to `report-emacs-bug'). I think this may happen to other org users not following org-mode development as well - so I just used the command to suggest this name as alias. Regards, Michael.
Hello, I want to suggest to make `report-org-bug' and alias for the command `org-submit-bug-report'. That's the name I expected (considering "report-emacs-bug"), also some other Emacs packages name their bug reporting command according to this scheme. The additional name would make this important command more discoverable. Second point: When you think it is a trivial task for a common user please consider to add some text to the initial buffer contents of the message buffer created by this command explaining where one can search for existing reports (to avoid duplicates and reports about things that are just pitfalls etc). My buffer included a link to a page explaining how to create a good report but there this information is also missing, although I think it would be a good place. TIA, Michael.

I find it acceptable once it's been made more secure (e.g. by using hooks like I mentioned). But I wonder now why you said there are still problems with final newlines (and you already got a confirmation), while I and other developers say it has been fixed. Do you use the org mode version built in Emacs, and you don't use Emacs master? Thanks, Michael.

A legitimate objection. > The way Org uses indirect, narrowed buffers for capturing is an > elegant use of Emacs features that helps protect user data from > accidental loss. Let me rethink from the other side: how could the issue I described (globbered org file) be prevented? If you happen to kill the capture buffer or forget about it, is there any indication left that there is a problem? A modified buffer visiting the org file is left, but as soon as you successfully capture something else Org happily saves both edits to the file. So maybe we could prevent the user from doing something wrong? Maybe like this: - kill-buffer-hook in the capture buffer could be used to prevent the user from killing such a buffer by accident. Or it could be made configurable what to do (e.g. undo the change with or without user prompting, ask for what to do, etc.) - kill-emacs-hook could be used to register a function that warns when any capture buffers are left when Emacs is to be killed. That would make a difference if you have captured more stuff after having forgotten about a former capture buffer. The user would be guided to finish what he would otherwise have forgotten. That would improve security even further without getting in the way in the normal workflow. Michael.
Hi, I want to speak about my Emacs bug report 37890 about org-capture. Seems my main point: | I want to capture an APPT with `org-capture'.

The user should somehow be prevented from that | happening. has been resolved with the latest merge into Emacs master - is that correct? Then I will close that report. The report also included a feature request which I now want to tell here: I often kill the capture buffer instead of hitting C-c C-k. Just by habit. It's wrong and I now it but I guess it happens to others. I guess the capture buffer is just a narrowed indirect buffer copy of the buffer visiting the according org file. Because of this, when you kill the capture buffer, the original buffer reflects the partial and uncomplete entry one tried to add. This may damage your file. But such internals are not known to all, so it would be good if killing the capture buffer, or even just closing the window, would warn the user and offer to undo the partial changes. Or (really better IMHO) consider a different implementation where the original buffer is not modified until the user explicitly confirms the stuff to capture with C-c C-c. TIA, Michael.

See http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2011-01/msg01204.html That discussion provides no reproducible recipe. But I think I found something that is related (before-string overlays vs. text properties) and is reproducible for emacs -Q: - visit a file under version control (I tried a git controlled file here) - M-x vc-annotate - v (i.e. vc-annotate-toggle-annotation-visibility) - M-x linum-mode == all lines but one loose their coloring. Those lines that are still colored loose their line number. nlinum-mode behaves similarly. Michael.

Hi Carsten, I believe I have done it in the right place now, please confirm. Confirmed, thanks, that's what I wanted. There's just a little typo in the docstring of `org-unlogged-message': Display a message, but avoid loggin it in the *Messages* buffer. ^ g Regards, Michael.
Re: [O] Bug: Messaging when moving in the agenda [7.9.2 (7.9.2-GNU-Emacs-24-3 @ /usr/share/emacs/24.2.50/lisp/org/)]
Hello, When I move around in the *Org Agenda* with up and down, the current outline path is displayed in the echo area, which is good. However, what is displayed gets also copied in the *Messages* buffer, which is not helpful, but clutters *Messages* with useless noise. So, IMHO `org-display-outline-path' should still display its stuff in the echo area, but prevent logging in *Messages*. AFAIK, the way to do this is to bind `message-log-max' to nil. Can we please try to make some progress here? I don't want to suggest a patch because I don't know the org code base well, but binding `message-log-max' to nil at one or two location should totally suffice. Who can help? Regards, Michael.

I'm not sure if this is the right thing in every case, but if the goal is to just display something for better orientation etc., there is no need for logging. Dunno if there are other functions that could benefit from the same treatment. Regards, Michael.

If you want to use unabbreviated names and/or other languages, configure the variables `parse-time-months' and `parse-time-weekdays'. It doesn't tell how the user can do that. Even worse, `parse-time-months' and `parse-time-weekdays' are not defined as user options and undocumented! After reading the above section in the org manual, users may replace the English names with e.g. German ones in their config. Seems this is not a good idea, as this user question in gnu.emacs.gnus shows: http://groups.google.com/group/gnu.emacs.gnus/browse_thread/thread/8dde85b5ff3ab454/a02ddb878bfa1eb9 The thread doesn't tell what is wrong with setting `parse-time-months' and `parse-time-weekdays'. Can you expand a bit more on this? The thread is not completely visible in google groups, dunno why. Please read at gnu.emacs.gnus with a newsreader. The problem was that the user replaced the English names with German names - instead of adding them to the lists. This broke Gnus. Currently, `parse-time-months' and `parse-time-weekdays' are internal variables with no docstring. Seems they are not intended to be changed by the user. Other packages may rely on the fact that the default values aren't changed. If they are supposed to be configured by the user, they should get a documented defcustom. At least, the documentation in the org manual _must_ be improved, so that the user is enabled to do the right thing without breaking anything else. BTW1: maybe a better solution would be to define own variables for this purpose in org, instead of letting users change variables in parse-time.el. Org heavily depends on parse-time.el. Providing a defcustom in Org that is tied to parse-time.el at the same time is not trivial. Why not? You could just write a function `org-parse-time-string' that binds `parse-time-months' and `parse-time-weekdays' accordingly and calls `parse-time-string'. Then you would just need to call this new function from org code. Regards, Michael.
