  Hi, with org-mode 6.21b and since some versions ago:

---------------------------------------
* learn the alphabet
  CLOCK: [2009-01-26 dl 17:04]--[2009-01-26 dl 18:04] =>  1:00
- a
 - b
- c
 - d

---------------------------------------



   With that file, clock in that task. You will get the drawer written like this:

---------------------------------------
* learn the alphabet
  :CLOCK:
  CLOCK: [2009-02-09 dl 16:03]
  CLOCK: [2009-01-26 dl 17:04]--[2009-01-26 dl 18:04] =>  1:00
- a
 - b
   :END:
- c
 - d

---------------------------------------


  Regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

this is difficult to avoid, since Org tries to incude clock notes
into the drawer, which look like items as well.

Here are your options:

1. Leave an empty line after the heading, before you list

2. The most robust may be to use

    (setq org-clock-into-drawer t)

    which will create the drawer immediately, already for
    the first clock entry.

HTH


- Carsten

  They look like normal content except for the indentation.
  If it were like this, it would be very hard to differentiate:

---------------------------------------
* learn the alphabet
CLOCK: [2009-01-26 dl 17:04]--[2009-01-26 dl 18:04] =>  1:00
- a
- b
- c
- d

---------------------------------------


  However, it is never like that. There's always at least 1 space/tab, like in:

---------------------------------------
* learn the alphabet
 CLOCK: [2009-01-26 dl 17:04]--[2009-01-26 dl 18:04] =>  1:00
- a
- b
- c
- d

---------------------------------------

  And thus it's possible to tell where the real content starts: at the first line without indentation.


  Of course, if the user uses indentation at the first line, they will be considered part of the drawers. Something like this:

---------------------------------------
* learn the alphabet
 CLOCK: [2009-01-26 dl 17:04]--[2009-01-26 dl 18:04] =>  1:00
 - a
- b
- c
- d

---------------------------------------

  But that would probably be what the user wanted; anyway this is not the usual case.
  On the other hand, I think the second example is more usual and should work.


  Thanks,
Daniel

The true problem here is:  I am such a user. :-)

  There are also users who write lists after entries... and the default behaviour is wrong for them. I don't think it's needed to change their habits and force them to write a blank line.
  I agree that it's difficult because it's not very clear where the metadata section (CLOCK/DEADLINE/SCHEDULE, drawers, …) ends.
  Maybe it can be made that: a list (of any tipe) at line beginning (no indentation) will break the metadata section and start the content section.

While I think it is not too much to ask to set the clock
drawer variable I mentioned earlier in order to get reliable
behavior for your application,  I guess it does not hurt to
check for smaller indentation than the clock line itself.  OK.

Hi Carsten,

I'll change my setting from 2 to this as well.

I tried using the customize interface to set this to 't' and it
complains that it is expecting an integer.  So I set it to 1 which I
assume means the same as t in this case (I didn't check the code to
prove that though).

No, 1 is not a valid value, that gives an error.
Hmm, it should work as you say... Does now.

Anyway, in customize, use "Value Menu" to select "Always", which
is the tag representing a t value.

Okay that doesn't work for me

I have the following setup for clocking phone calls which are started by
a remember template with :CLOCK-IN: in the text of the template

,----[ .emacs ]
| (add-hook 'remember-mode-hook 'my-start-clock-if-needed 'append)
| 
| (defun my-start-clock-if-needed ()
|   (save-excursion
|     (goto-char (point-min))
|     (when (re-search-forward " *:CLOCK-IN: *" nil t)
|       (replace-match "")
|       (org-clock-in))))
| 
`----

That breaks with org-clock-into-drawer set to 1 with the following error

,----
| org-clock-find-position: Wrong type argument: integer-or-marker-p, nil
`----

I don't have time to dig into this more right now so I've just reverted
back to the default for this variable.

WOW you're fast!

Okay, disregard my other message about clocking into a remember template
automatically - it works great now :)

I've set org-clock-into-drawer to 1 and it works great!  I'll try
setting it to 't' next.

Thanks alot!

  Thanks, this makes the default configuration (with that variable unset) work better.
