Hi,

I am new to org-mode ( I tried org-mode a year back for a few days, and now
again I am trying it.) but have been a power emacs user for more than 13
years.  Know enough emacs-lisp to do the normal things.

I installed org-mode 6.18c on top of 22.1.1.  I would like to get the
display look like the screenshot at the orgmode.org main page.  In
particular,


   1. The extra stars in the beginning should be avoided.
   2. I should be able to display and manipulate checkboxes.

Could someone tell me what variables I need to set for that?

I know that RTFM is a good answer.  I tried it, but didn't find the answer
easily :)

- Umesh

Org changes pretty fast.  Fundamentally it's still as simple but so many
usability and convenience features have been added.  If you used Org
briefly earlier then perhaps you may want to check out what has been
added since at http://orgmode.org/Changes.html.

I would say you did not try hard enough. :) I went to
http://orgmode.org/manual/index.html and searched for "stars" to get the
answer to the first questions, and searched for "checkboxes" to get the
answer for the second.

Org manual is really really good; do try it.

Of course, you may also find the tutorials[1], FAQ[2] and Worg[3] also
useful.

1. http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/index.php
2. http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.php
3. http://orgmode.org/worg/

Welcome again.

Thanks Manish.   I did find the checkbox section, but it didn't work for
me.  I got it by a google search on "emacs org-mode check boxes".  I put the
'[]' manually, and then tried C-c C-c to check it, but it didn't work.

Will try these and let you know tomorrow.

I had used planner before, and the org mode is much much better.

Thanks again.

A space is required between the brackets:

  [ ]

not

  []


Could that be the issue? (I made that very mistake when I was new to org-mode.)

That was it.  And I missed the '-' character for the list.

Thanks a lot.  Now everything is working.
