From: 'Ihor Radchenko' <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Bug: org-babel-execute:emacs-lisp does not allow changing window configuration from within code block [9.3 (release_9.3 @ /home/yantar92/.emacs.d/straight/build/org/)] Date: Fri, 20 Dec 2019 22:59:38 +0800 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and what in fact did happen. You don't know how to make a good report? See https://orgmode.org/manual/Feedback.html#Feedback Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recipe: 1. emacs -Q 2. Create the following org file #+begin_src emacs-lisp (split-window-below) #+end_src 3. Execute the source block Observed behaviour: The block returns, but the window is not splitted Expected behaviour: The window is splitted The reason of the observed behaviour is that org-babel-execute:emacs-lisp wraps the code block evaluation into save-window-excursion. Thus window manipulation is impossible from within babel blocks. The real case scenario when one would need to change window layout from within babel block is a window setup for a project development. If certain project requires working with specific window configuration, this can be defined by adding all the setup into a babel block somewhere in the project. Then, the layout could be applied just by hitting C-c C-c on the code block once one need to work on the project. However, it is not possible with the current org-babel-execute:emacs-lisp implementation.
