Being that this is Emacs, you can do almost anything you want, with a little Elisp practice. ;) For example, you could write some custom move command which would automatically add the new folder to some variable or file with a list of folders to add to places for org-id to look in from now on. However perhaps we should take a step back and ask ourselves if this is a good approach? And IMHO, starting to scatter files here and there throughout the filesystem is not a good idea. Even if you implement above mentioned custom Elisp, it adds (IMO, needless) complexity. Therefore I would think long and hard if that is actually really necessary, before starting to go down that path. Just my $0.02. Cheers, TRS-80
