I think the function is the best option, as the logic of whether to
store ids (based on the value of org-id-link-to-org-use-id) is
hard-coded into org-store-link and can't be changed through arguments.
You could always create a custom function and bind it to 'C-c l' in
org-mode:

(defun my-org-store-org-link (arg)
  "Store a link org mode.
When there is a prefix arg, use file+headline format"
  (interactive "P")
  (let ((org-id-link-to-org-use-id (not arg)))
(org-store-link nil t)))

Best,

How to occasionally store link as file.org+headline

2020-02-14 Thread Mirko Vukovic
Hello,

For most of my links, I want to use the ID generated by orgmode
i.e., (setq org-id-link-to-org-use-id t)

But occasionally, for targets that are not part of my agenda files, I want
to store a link of the type file:path.org::*headline

I wrote the following function to accomplish that:

(defun org-store-file+headline ()
  "Store link as file + headline"
  (interactive)
  (let ((org-id-link-to-org-use-id nil))
(org-store-link nil t)))

This function works (lightly tested).

But is there a built-in way, such as using prefixes or arguments to
org-store-link? I browsed the code for it, but that function is several
hundred lines long, and I gave up.

Thank you,

Mirko
