Which might take some time, but in many cases (I imagine even including this one) is probably The Right Thing to do. If you can wait for that, it will end up improving Org and likely helping a lot of people, including yourself (eventually). I guess some times I just prefer my own local "quick and dirty" solution which can be "good enough" or a workaround pending a more proper solution. Although, to be fair, the ability to maintain such solutions (long term) is sort of dependent on knowing a bit of Elisp. So it's a bit of a trade-off. > I can send a long capture template.

Or we can wait for more list replies and see what others think. As I said there may also be a better way I am not aware of. If I'm being honest, I have plenty other things to work on, too. ;) But since I open my big mouth now, I can't very well leave you hanging, now can I? :D It also depends on how complicated stuff we are talking... Actually, another option just occurred to me. I don't know where you are sending results of the capture template, but if you are just appending to file(s) perhaps you could break the one big template up into some number of smaller ones?
