Subject: timestamp editing
Date: Sat, 21 Mar 2009 12:22:33 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20524da70903211222v3487df9bk86cb4b97d4f81574@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

When I edit a timestamp using c-c , or similar, I find that
there is no minibuffer history, so the arrow keys do not
seem to do anything useful.  Perhaps they are useful for
some other purpose?

Therefore the arrow keys seem free, for at least some users.

At the same time, shift-arrow keys work to edit the
minibuffer overlay feedback date, but they do so in a
different way from timestamp editing in the
outline buffer (up and right arrows mean earlier).  They are
intuitive for editing the calendar.

At least for me, this would work best: arrow keys navigate
the calendar, while shift arrow keys change the minibuffer.

Then shift arrows would work for the minibuffer as they do
in the outline buffer, and arrows would work as expected in
the calendar.

Has this been considered before?

diseases studied; e.g. Schweitzer et al. 1995) and grossly corrupting
