Hi,

I am using date trees with org-capture with the =:empty-lines n= directive.
The list item of =org-capture-templates= looks similar to this one:

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
(list "j" "Journal" 'entry
      (list 'file+olp+datetree journal-file)
      "* %^{Entry}\n%?\n"
      :empty-lines 1)
#+END_EXAMPLE

Now, whenever a new day is inserted, for instance today,

: *** 2018-04-06 Friday

There is no empty line before that line but between this line and the actual
headline of the captured entry. So the complete captured entry looks like this:

: Some text in the file that was already present before the Org capture process.
: Bla.
: *** 2018-04-06 Friday
:
: **** TODO The newly captured entry
:      Some text.

However, I think it should rather look like this:

: Some text in the file that was already present before the Org capture process.
: Bla.
:
: *** 2018-04-06 Friday
: (OPTIONAL EMPTY LINE HERE)
: **** TODO The newly captured entry
:      Some text.

Only, if I enter another entry, the line should be left empty, like

: Some text in the file that was already present before the Org capture process.
: Bla.
:
: *** 2018-04-06 Friday
: (OPTIONAL EMPTY LINE HERE)
: **** TODO The newly captured entry
:      Some text.
: (MANDATORY EMPTY LINE HERE)
: **** TODO The new newly captured entry
:      Bla bla bla.

Please let me know what you think.

Dominik
