Subject: Proposal: do not align tags in Agenda
Date: Thu, 24 Sep 2020 11:16:16 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CADt3fpOgieOFa7b8Zmhh6RY4LaWm2AB5dVDo41p0d6T1_GpsBw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 437 bytes --]

Hello all,

I have a wide screen, which makes right edge alignment of tags in the
agenda inconvenient (they're hard to match with the main entry).
Setting org-agenda-tags-column to a specific column overwrites part of
the entry, which is not optimal.  I'd simply want the tag to be put
_after_ the entry.  The attached patch is what I've been using for the
past month, and it seems to work alright.

Thoughts for/against?

Stay safe,
