[ I'm looking at the copy on master (e9c3993ee), though org-list.el hasn't changed since that last release. ] org-reset-checkbox-state-subtree calls (org-update-checkbox-count-maybe 'all) and org-update-checkbox-count-maybe calls (org-update-checkbox-count all) And org-update-checkbox-count considers ALL, so I'm not spotting anything that's undefined. > I’d like this value to be nil because I don’t want to update the > statistics cookies in the entire buffer, but I don’t see a way to do > this (pardon my limited elisp). My workaround is to add an optional > all argument to org-reset-checkbox-state-subtree and pass it to > org-update-checkbox-count-maybe. Why does refreshing the stats for the entire buffer cause a problem for you? > This seems like the desired functionality unless I’m missing > something. Is the current implementation intentional? Yes, the change was made with a0bc3bdeb (org-list: fix update of check-boxes cookies in whole trees, 2011-06-20). The example that prompted that change was reported at <https://email@example.com/>. Here's a reduced example: * a ** aa [1/1] - [X] l ** ab [1/1] - [X] m Calling org-reset-checkbox-state-subtree with point at the top-level "a" should uncheck l and m and the stats of both subheadings should go to [0/1]: * a ** aa [0/1] - [ ] l ** ab [0/1] - [ ] m If you were to drop `all' from -reset-checkbox-state-subtree's the call to -update-checkbox-count-maybe, the result would instead be * a ** aa [1/1] - [ ] l ** ab [0/1] - [ ] m
