Hello,

what's the difference between org-marker and org-hd-marker markers?
What does "hd" stand for?

TIA,

Michael.

My reading (which could be very wrong) is that org-hd-marker is always
set to the start of the headline.  org-marker, on the other hand, is set
to some position in the entry that depends on who is setting it.

For example, with an agenda file like

  ** TODO a
  SCHEDULED: <2020-10-26 Mon>

and a buffer generated with org-agenda-list, org-marker for the entry
points to "<".  In a buffer generated with org-todo-list, it points to
the first "*" of the headline (i.e. the same position as org-hd-marker).

Headline, I guess.

Thanks for the insights, Kyle.

Do you know whether I can assume that one of those is always present
(org-marker probably, since org-hd-marker is not always present) when
examining the result of `org-agenda-get-day-entries'?  I don't care
about the exact location in an entry.

Ah, that would make sense (and also explain why there are no 4k markers
;-)


Regards,

Michael.

Going through each of the collection functions at the end of
org-agenda-get-day-entries, it looks like they all set org-marker.
Plus, I can spot places in org-agenda.el that rely on agenda entries
having org-marker (e.g., org-agenda-goto and org-agenda-todo), so I
think that assumption would be safe.

Great, thanks for checking, Kyle.

Michael.
