Subject: Re: Fixes for org-capture-templates-contexts

Message-ID: <50f01763.624fec0a.484e.439b@mx.google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <loom.20130110T215801-106@post.gmane.org>

By a great coincidence I just discovered org-capture-templates-contexts
yesterday but could not make it work yet (didn't have much time to
investigate it). Is it possible to have capture templates that do not
appear in any buffer but can be called from lisp? The idea is that I'm
implementing some org-capture templates right now that I only intend to
call via "(org-capture nil 'some letter')" and never via "C-c c". Maybe
today is my luck day and it is exactly this new "not-in-buffer" context you
have just added?

ps: this rule affecting all sub-templates will also be very userful.
