Subject: [PATCH] Org Capture Add Tags with org-toggle-tag
Date: Wed, 02 Feb 2022 19:57:38 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87h79gydfh.fsf@kevinjfoley.me> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 865 bytes --]

I have a capture template which utilizes %^g to prompt me for a tag to
add to a headline which already has a tag.  An example to demonstrate

* TODO %? %^g                                             :foo:

If I call this template and give it "bar" when prompted for a tag, it
results in (where | is the cursor position):

* TODO | :bar:                                            :foo:

And bar is recognized as a tag.

I've been able to resolve this with the attached patch.  However,
looking at the git history of that code it seems the intent might have
been to prevent some recursive resolution so I'm not sure if this breaks

I've realized I could also attach the %^g to :foo: tag in the template
and things work as expected but if that's the expectation then I think
it's worth mentioning in the docstring for org-capture-templates.
