Hi Folks,

I take miscellaneous meeting notes using plain lists.  It's usually a 
pretty hectic trying to take notes during a meeting, so I'm making up 
the structure as I go along.

I often get to a point where I indented an item wrong:

   - item 1
   - item 1.1
   - item 2

I need to get up to item 1.1 and move it as a child of 1.  I'd like 
[tab] to adjust the indentation.

I discovered the 'org-cycle-include-plain-lists' variable.  The 
documentation for the var states:

      If `org-cycle-include-plain-lists' has not been set, <TAB> fixes
      the indentation of the current line in a heuristic way.

That sounds like what I want, but setting to nil doesn't do it, it just 
makes <TAB> a nop.

Any thoughts?

...cj

Hi Christopher,

M-right and M-left on item 1.1 will promote / demote it, just as with
headings.
