Hello,

I use tags-todo searches in my custom agenda commands. Unfortunately, tags-todo
does not honour the org-agenda-todo-list-sublevels variable which I want to use
in order to ignore nested todo items. Is there a way to persuade tags-todo to do
this? I know that there is a variable org-agenda-tags-todo-honor-ignore-options
which does this for org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date etc. It would be nice if
there is something similar to this for org-agenda-todo-list-sublevels. Even
better would be if this could be adjusted per individual tags-todo search. For
example for certain cases I do not want to see nested TODO items but I do want
to see nested WAITING items. With two tags-todo searches having different
behaviour on nested todo items this would be feasible.

Cheers,
Patrick

You know, interesting that you bring this up.
Not showing sublevels is something from the early days of Org-mode.
For a simple tag search, this might have made some sense.  However,
I was afraid that TODO items could get missing when turning this
on, so when we do a tags search that should list TODO entries
only, Org assumes that this is really a TODO search and *forces*
listing sublevels.

First of all, for tag searches, there is a separate variable
org-tags-match-list-sublevels which must be used.
However, as I said, the value is currently overruled during
tags-todo searches.

I am now removing this restriction (hoping that no-one relies on
it), so setting the above variable should now work.

In fact I would urge you to *not* set it to nil globally, but to
*only* set it for specific searches, by using the options section
of the custom agenda command.  See Matt's excellent tutorial

   http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-custom-agenda-commands.php

for example on how to do this.

great, it works now. Thanks for your help!

I missed that. Thanks again.

Cheers,
