No, I am sorry, that is completely off. I have done this minor mode to make it independent of TODO states. Just replacing TODO and DONE (as I already did as described in other thread 2 days ago), is effectively locking TODO to ack as checkboxes. I would like to be able to use TODO states together with a checkbox, independently of each other, so no, I need something more general then just renamed todo states. Also unicode will depend on some font to be installed, I don't want to pay that dependency, since I am using this for my init file. By the way, this is not a patch, this is a small minor mode that can be installed and enabled/disabled like an extra package. By the way, there is a widghet.el library included in Emacs, if I wanted to use checkboxes as in screenshot there, I could use that library, but that would be much more involved than those few lines to write the code I attached in first mail. > On Mon, May 03, 2021 at 09:00:40AM +0200, Arthur Miller wrote: > >> >> Last night I have been playing with a minor mode to enable a checkbox in >> a heading, or rather to fake a checkbox.
