Subject: Org meta up/down and left/right behavior
Date: Tue, 5 Nov 2019 08:58:54 -0600	[thread overview]

Hello all,

I noticed for the first time the difference in the shift key
behavior in the following function groups:

org-meta up/down versus org-shiftmeta up/down
org-meta left/right versus org-shift meta left/right

With the up/down behavior the shift key being pressed indicates
that I wish to only bring the main heading up/down.

With the left/right behavior the shift key indicates that I wish
to bring the entire subtree left / right.

This behavior seems to be inconsistent -- am I correct?  I noticed this
today - I use the left/right behavior the most often and map the shift key
to mean
"Take the entire subtree".  Today I was moving some headlines up/down and
this difference.

Has anyone made this behavior consistent by mapping keys or some other
method?  It seems
that changing these specific mappings could impact other aspects (e.g.
table rows) which may
cause other inconsistencies -- thus the difference in behavior of the shift
key :-)
