This is what I'm currently getting. I want to have a document with all my
minutes and my idea is, that I should be able to export one heading for
each meeting, so I can prepare an agenda and afterwards fill in the
outcome of the discussions.

Yes, I get the same result. I don't want subsections to be promoted to
sections when I export the org-markup. Is that possible?

Thanks for the keystroke advice. Love a bit of emacs-hints :)
