From: Tim Cross <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Bug: Priority Of A Task In Emacs 27.2 Cannot Be Removed With Space Key ("SPC to remove") Date: Fri, 28 May 2021 00:40:24 +1000 [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) In-Reply-To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Confirmed. Yes, I would agree that not being able to clear the priority by entering space when using numeric priorities is a bug. The minibuffer prompt even states you can enter a space character to clear the priority. To reproduce - set the org variables (setq org-priority-highest 1 org-priority-lowest 10 org-priority-default 5) Use C-c , to set a priority on a TODO item. Use C-c , and enter a space <enter> Observe the priority cookie is not removed. This only occurs with numeric priority values. The default letter based priority values and space to clear functionality work as expected.
