I use org-attach to copy and attach images in my org-mode notes. I would
like to assign org-attach-id-dir using directory local variable. Please
find the statements I use in directory local file to define my org-roam
directory and org-attach-id-dir below for reference.
Directory local configuration:
((nil . ((eval . (setq-local
(eval . (setq-local
org-roam-db-location (expand-file-name "org-roam.db"
(eval . (setq-local
org-attach-id-dir (expand-file-name "attachments"
My Emacs and Org-mode configuration:
Emacs: 28.1 (Doom Emacs)
The org-mode file opened from this directory respects the attachment
location defined in directory local variable when display of inline
images during start-up is disabled. Org mode displays the attachments
once the org file is open, and I toggle display of inline image. The
same files throw an error when I open the file with inline images
enabled at startup.
1. Have I made an error in how I define the directory local file?
2. If I have not made and error, Is it possible to define the attachment
directory in directory local variable and have org mode respect the
location when display of inline images are enabled during startup?
3. If I did make an error, do you have any recommendation on how I can
I am new to Emacs, and I am not good at Emacs Lisp currently. It's
something I am trying to learn. Any suggestions or recommendation would
help. I am open to testing this out in stock Emacs if that's something
that will help.
Thanks & Regards,
