Here is part of an IRC conversation that perhaps clarifies what I mean... (the last sentence should not be seen as a threat BTW :)) <rogim> incal: that "Outliner" feature (i.e. collpasing and replacing things) is more or less the core of org-mode. emacs being emacs I bet you can disable it. but it would be completely braindead. in the true sense of the word. you would lobotmoize emacs. <incal> well, one can easily think of outliner features for HTML, CSS, LaTeX, even source code for every programming language, and I never used it for anything else <incal> so I guess I have always been braindead :) <rogim> I get what you mean, I don't use code folding like this anywhere else. it's just annoying with code. but org-mode is really about organzing information in a tree and collapsing parts of it and maybe moving things around. so if you don't need it, org-mode might be the wrong tool there. then again emacs can be adapt for everyone ofc <incal> what I was looking for was a way to typeset that had a less involved syntax than LaTeX, to be able to create simple PDFs, somewhere between plain text and LaTeX. I asked on gmane.emacs.orgmode , if they cannot solve it I'll just `require' org, apply the org-mode's font-lock to a text-mode buffer, and use `org-latex-export-to-pdf' -- underground experts united http://user.it.uu.se/~embe8573 https://dataswamp.org/~incal
