Its value is 'headline-data Original value was t This variable is safe as a file local variable if its value satisfies the predicate ‘booleanp’. You can customize this variable. Documentation: Non-nil means adapt indentation to outline node level. When this variable is set to t, Org assumes that you write outlines by indenting text in each node to align with the headline (after the stars). When this variable is set to ’headline-data, only adapt the indentation of the data lines right below the headline, such as planning/clock lines and property/logbook drawers. The following issues are influenced by this variable: - The indentation is increased by one space in a demotion command, and decreased by one in a promotion command. However, in the latter case, if shifting some line in the entry body would alter document structure (e.g., insert a new headline), indentation is not changed at all. - Property drawers and planning information is inserted indented when this variable is set. When nil, they will not be indented. - TAB indents a line relative to current level. The lines below a headline will be indented when this variable is set to t. Note that this is all about true indentation, by adding and removing space characters. See also "org-indent.el" which does level-dependent indentation in a virtual way, i.e. at display time in Emacs.
