[O] hiding the PROPERTIES drawer

2015-03-25 Thread Randomcoder
Hi, Is there an easier solution to hiding the :PROPERTIES: drawer by default ? I was reading through this [1] but it's extremely complicated and I would like to use this but.. currently it's absent from org-mode. What do you use for this ? (Btw, I mainly want to hide the PROPERTIES drawer

[O] org-mode timestamp and calendar questions

2015-03-24 Thread Randomcoder
Hi, Is it possible to make org-mode timestamps inactive? (I mean, the calendar(Google calendar) and the org-agenda would ignore them) I tried specifying that I should be notified 1h in advance for an event like this : 2015-03-24 Mon 07:30 -1h but apparently this is not the way to do it. Is it

Hi Eric, I've also seen these threads from the archive of the mailing list discussing about the very same thing. In summary it seems that in 2008 Carsten's opinion on this was that it would add a lot of complexity and it's a pandora's box about to be open. In 2014, Nicolas's reply seems a bit

[O] ID property generated by org-mobile

2015-03-20 Thread Randomcoder
Does the ID property have any use? I know I can disable it, but where is it being used ? (the ID property that org-mobile generates for each heading) Are there any drawbacks to just disabling it with (setq org-mobile-force-id-on-agenda-items nil) ? Is it being used somewhere in particular ?

[O] [proposal] timezone-aware timestamps enhancement

2015-03-18 Thread Randomcoder
Hi, Currently, AFAIK when scheduling something in Org-Mode, the timestamp doesn't have a timezone. Use-case example: Let's say Carsten Dominik schedules a meeting with someone, then jumps on a plane and travels to some place that's on a timezone difference of -/+ 3 hours. He will probably miss

[O] [proposal] better documentation around syntax highlighting Org-Mode code blocks when exporting to LaTeX

Hi, While writing technical documents, as a programmer and an Org-Mode user, for me it's important to have ways to syntax highlight code blocks when exporting them to LaTeX. While I am aware of the customizations that need to be done to Org-Mode's configuration in order to get that to work, in

[O] [proposal] enhancement of Org-Mode tables and related features

2015-03-17 Thread Randomcoder
Hi 1) Org-Mode tables currently do not have an easy way to format each cell individually. For regular text, I can select a region and do M-x fill-paragraph and that works fine, but for Org-Mode tables, I cannot do that. Yes, I know about M-x org-table-wrap-region , I have tried to use it for a
