Hi all,

the default remember-mode generates a title automatically from the text input.

For example, if I enter the command M-x org-remember
and input the content of this e-mail followed by C-c C-c,
the title "(Hi all)" is automatically generated.

I think this feature is really nice, because sometimes you don't have any specific title for your text or you are just too lazy to think of a title.
Unfortunately, I have no idea how to realize this using the capture-mode templates.

Is there a way to make a capture-mode template having this feature?

Regards,

Jae

You might check out C-h v org-capture-templates RET

org-capture-templates is a variable defined in `org-capture.el'.
Its value is shown below.

Documentation:
Templates for the creation of new entries.

Each entry is a list with the following items:

...

template     The template for creating the capture item.  If you leave this
             empty, an appropriate default template will be used.  See below
             for more details.  Instead of a string, this may also be one of

                 (file "/path/to/template-file")
                 (function function-returning-the-template)

             in order to get a template from a file, or dynamically
             from a function.
...

So something like

(setq org-capture-templates
      '(("x" "TEMPLATE NAME" entry (file "~/org/inbox.org"))
        (my-template-function)))

Should work. `my-template-function' would create the template; the
buffer that was visitied when the template was called can be get by

(org-capture-get :original-buffer)

Best,
