Subject: Can't use char ">" in TODO state
Date: Tue, 18 Oct 2011 12:32:06 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <80d3duoajd.fsf@somewhere.org> (raw)



Instead of using the TODO state "NEW", I tried using "NEW>" so that it
occupies 4 letters, as all my other states (better display in the agenda).


* TEST Do this

Simply use S-right arrow to cycle through the different states, and you'll see
"NEW>" added many times:

- DONE Do this
- CANX Do this
- Do this
- NEW> Do this

  which "prooves" that "NEW>" is well somehow considered as a TODO state,
  being added automagically, but the next cycle steps don't succeed...

- NEW> NEW> Do this
- NEW> NEW> NEW> Do this
- ...

I find this behavior not entirely satisfying, even if I can fully accept that
">" is a forbidden character in the TODO states. For example, we could think
of a warning being generated, or of the state being fully ignored, or ...

BTW, do you have an alternative for this "NEW" state, in 4 positions? ;-)

Best regards,

Sebastien Vauban
