Subject: Bug: org-catch-invisible-edits doesn't actually catch most deletions [9.4 (9.4-41-g9bb930-elpaplus @ /home/omarantolin/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20201116/)]
Date: Mon, 23 Nov 2020 00:33:56 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87lfesinu3.fsf@matem.unam.mx> (raw)

Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See


Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list.

Setting org-catch-invisible-edits to 'error does catch org-delete-backward-char (bound to <backspace> by default), but it doesn't catch backward-kill-word (<C-backspace>), or kill-word with argument -1 (M-- M-d), or backward-kill-sexp (ESC <C-backspace>).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create an org file with the following 3 lines:

* Stop, hammer time!
You can't touch this
* Break it down!

2. Run emacs -Q and visit the file.

3. M-: (setq org-catch-invisible-edits 'error)

4. Make sure the first headline is folded and place point after the ellipsis.

5. Now you can try any of the commands mentioned in the first paragraph.

The org-catch-invisible-edits will successfully block you from using <backspace>, but any of the other command I mentioned will silently delete the word "this". Because of the variable's name, I would expect all these commands to be blocked.

Maybe technically this isn't a bug, since the docstring for org-catch-invisible-edits only says: "Check if in invisible region before inserting or deleting a character." So you can argue it only promises to block deletion if you attempt it one character at a time, and if you try to delete a word, the docstring doesn't promise to stop you.

I'd suggest that naming the variable org-catch-invisible-edits strongly suggests it should catch all deletions in the invisible text and that the current behavior is misleading.
