I would like to remind you that all the Emacs and org-mode development is only volunteer-based. As a result, people implement things they are interested in and they have spare time for. If the features you find useful are not implemented, there are at least three possibilities: 1. Others do not use them and do not need them. In such a case, you can just implement the desired functionality privately. 2. Others would find the feature useful, but they never thought of it. You can send a feature request to this mailing list. If people are interested, they can find time to make that feature into org-mode. Or you can provide patches. 3. Others would like to have the features, but did not get time to do it. Again, patches welcome. In any scenario, it would be useful to send feature request/patch to this mailing list: 1. You will let others know about your ideas 2. You might get new ideas what can improve your workflow or even find some superior approach that makes your feature obsolete 3. You can get the feature into org-mode, likely improved in the process Important note: it is not very useful to dump all the ideas into a single email in the above scenario. The suggestion would more likely be noticed if one idea/feature is limited to a single thread. Best, Ihor
