Subject: Re: next-error for agenda searches
Date: Sat, 18 Dec 2021 18:10:21 -0700 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJcAo8tyEWyaqT3YnrVQsnKCuwpwpbsk335++--tASw_gSjN+Q@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
btw, if anybody has difficulty understanding why i mention a bug or
suggest a feature [such as why anbydoy would want it], please feel
free to say so, otherwise i don't know that that is the case. [please
go easy on me though.]
in this case, it is an emacs consistency fr. across emacs, next-error
goes from match to match, and it seems to me [perhaps i am mistaken]
that agenda searches should be emacsy too.
as for why it would be useful to me, so that i can get full context,
with point at the match, thus 1] getting all the matches in my hands
in the outline and 2] being able to edit immediately.
furthermore, the next-closest thing, follow mode, puts point in wrong
window. also, 'canonical visibility is not present so i cannot see
everything [this might or might not be fixable by user].
also there is an accessibility issue with it. i use large fonts so 2
windows do not show much. i use 2 windows only for very rare
completion or selecting purposes. not usable here.
but i think it is an emacs consistency issue. i agree with the
frequently expressed idea that new features should be justified
carefully, and next-error working as in e.g. grep seems right here.
this isn't a huge deal for me at all, but e.g. when i do agenda
searches i get really overwhelmed by the size and irrelevance
[including duplication] of my own org forest developed over years.
next-error would help me traverse and trim it rapidly. i could
perhaps create a kb macro to emulate it, but i haven't tried yet.
then again, one could do so for grep mode etc. also. :]
