Hi everybody,

so far I've only used one org file, but it's getting unwieldy and I've
decided to split it up.

I'd also like to split up my attachment directory to reduce clutter.
For example, if I have two org files "personal.org" and "work.org" I
would like attachments to go into automatically created directories
below "~/org/data/personal" and "~/org/data/work". If a file has no
custom attachment directory specified, attachments should be created
below a default path (same as now).

Is this possible?

Thanks,
Viktor

One way to do this is to use file variables to change the value of
org-attach-directory. This works particularly well when you use just a few
org files as in your case.

For instance, you could put
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# Local Variables:
# org-attach-directory: "~/org/data/personal"
# End:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
in your personal.org file and 
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# Local Variables:
# org-attach-directory: "~/org/data/work"
# End:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
in your work.org file.

Hi,

this works for simple files but breaks silently for my org files. I've
narrowed it down to two seemingly unrelated parts and attached two
examples below.

- good1.org contains an entry with two tables. When I visit the file,
  Emacs asks me to evaluate the local variable. In bad1.org the first
  table contains another section with the entry "Rechnungsbeitrag". When
  I visit the file, Emacs does not ask me and I can verify that the
  local variable is not evaluated by attaching something to the task.

- In bad2.org the offending part is a long LOGBOOK drawer. Removing any
  two lines from the drawer makes the example work. In good2.org I've
  removed the first two lines.

If it weren't for those bugs, this would fit my needs exactly!

Cheers,
Viktor

I tested here and it didn't work for the bad files as you said. However,
putting the "Local Variables" at the end of the file worked. In fact, I
have always written local variables like this at the end of the file,
although I don't remember if this was because of a restriction of just
because I'm used to.

A good tip is to put them inside a "* File Local Variables" heading so that
they don't stay inside another heading. You can set the noexport tag to
avoid exporting this heading.

Also, you can use the function add-file-local-variable to add a new local
variable. Notice how this function put the local variables at the end of
the file.

There is a restriction (see section 53.3.4.1,  "Specifying File Variables",
in the emacs manual):

,----
|    Instead of using a `-*-' line, you can define file local variables
| using a "local variables list" near the end of the file.  The start of

Hi,

putting the definition at the end of the file appears to work. At least
for two org files of mine which didn't work before. But it's still a
bug that definitions at the beginning are silently ignored for seemingly
unrelated parts, isn't it? I'll post a bug report to the mailing list.

Anyway, thanks for your help!

Cheers,
Viktor

Hi Nick,

thanks for the info. That explains the weird behavior I noticed. I
didn't know that local variables were a general Emacs feature.

Cheers,
Viktor
