Hi Carsten

Just updated to 6.20e. Before, on 6.18c, if I had a plain list like
this:

* Test
  - [ ] A
  - [ ] B
  - [ ] C

With the cursor on the test line, typing `c-c c-x c-b' would check all
the boxes, and repeating would uncheck them. Now it doesn't seem to
toggle, only check.

I hope this isn't a permanent change, or that there's another way to
turn them all off because I use lists of check boxes 20 or 30 items long
to mark off the little bits & pieces I like to get done every day. It'd
be a bit tedious to have to manually set them all unchecked at the
beginning of each day, even with a macro.

Ooops, I forgot about this part of the functionality during
a recent revamp of this command.  Fixed now.

Thanks!

Have you looked at org-checklist.el in contrib? I wrote that to handle this kind
of thing.

Make sure org-checklist.el is in your load path, and add
(require 'org-checklist)
 to your .emacs. You can then set up your daily task like so:

,----[ test.org ]
| * TODO test
|   SCHEDULED: <2009-01-29 Thu + 1d>
|   :PROPERTIES:
|   :RESET_CHECKBOXES: t
|   :END:
|   - [ ] Task 1
|   - [ ] Task 2
|   - [ ] Task 3
`----

and when you mark it done all the checkboxes will be cleared.

James
