  To: Org Mode


I just noticed that there seems to be a problem with org-store-link  
(or in that context) with the current development version (6.28trans).

I want to insert a link to one section of one org-file into another  
org-file, so I change to the file with the section I want to link to  
and use org-store-link (that section already has an ID property; the  
heading's name is displayed in the minibuffer - fine). I return to the  
file where I want to insert the link and use org-insert-link which  
offers the id I had just stored.

(1) However, only the id is inserted and org seems to forget about the  
other file's name, "literal hyperlinks" yields:
[[id:2806BA39-087E-4E2E-89E6-6DFA332727D2][some heading]]
When exporting to HTML, the link is rendered to a local link (here:  
"#2806BA39...") of the current file rather than "./my-other-org- 
file#2806BA39...", which is a problem, of course. Clicking on the link  
in org-mode will also not open the file.

(2) org-insert-link offers a list of ids which have been stored with  
the corresponding headings added on the right, using Arrow-Up and  
Arrow-Down will show the selected id in the minibuffer. As I want org  
to come up with unique ids for sections automatically (it does), I am  
usually not interested what ids it actually generates and I would  
suggest a different approach with org-insert-link: have a list of  
headings instead of a list of ids and show the selected link's  
heading, not its id, in the minibuffer, sorry if this has been  
discussed before. There may be cases where it is important to see a  
link's id in the selection so one could have an optional mode that  
adds the ids to the list.
