* Navigation via headlines, with completion?

Hi all,

To navigate to a specific header, I'm using org-refile with the prefix
argument and a :maxlevel entry in org-refile-targets high enough to
cover the maximum depth of the tree. This gives me a 'flat' view of
all the headlines in the file with completion.

Am I missing a more natural approach? I'd really like to get top-down
completion like remember provides when you interactively select a
filing point, but just for navigation. This is also something like
org-goto, but with header completion instead of searching against the
text or physically moving though the file.

Oh, and I'm using 6.10c, would an upgrade make this easier?

Thanks,
Mike

C-c C-j works great for navigating in the current file.

I use:

C-c b to get to the file I want
C-c C-j to walk around the tree until I find the entry I want
        You can fold/unfold items here with TAB and then RETURN selects
        the item the cursor is on.

Does that help?

Bah. Sorry Mike.  What I'm using _is_ org-goto.  I didn't read your
question thoroughly enough.  Sorry.

Shoot. I thought I was being helpful by giving the function name
instead of the key-binding. Looks like I just made more confusion.

I'll probably give org-goto another try. Since the functionality I'm
looking for already exists in remember, I may try hacking my first org
extension by adding it to to org-goto.

Thanks,
Mike
