You know, I have been agonizing over these bindings, switching them back and forward. Obviously, I would like to have things like in dired and similar programs. I don't want to switch `d' to `D', no way. One of the consistent things in the agenda keymap is that caleandar/diary related keys are upper case. `d' and `w' are not negotiable. With `d' and `w' in place, `m' and `y' are consistent, logical. However, I don't believe anyone uses monthly views, I am sure that no-one uses yearly views, right? So I will negotiate over `m', i someone can propose a viable alternative that makes sense. u and U are free, so this will be good and we should use this. I strongly hesitate to use "x" for action, because it has been "exit" for so many years, and because I don't want anyone to execute this command by accident.... - Carsten > > Here is how the keys are mapped on various modes: > > | key | dired & bookmark-mode & buff-menu | Org | > |-----+------------------------------------+---------------| > | m | mark | month view | > | u | unmark | | > | d | mark for deletion | day view | > | D | delete marked | include diary | > | x | perform actions | exit agenda | > | U | unmark (only in dired) | [unset] | > > I propose to use [dmuUx] the same way in Org.
