From: Matthew Lundin <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Refile as top-level headlines? Date: Wed, 14 Jan 2009 09:49:04 -0600 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) Hi everyone, I have a lot of org-files and use org-refile all the time as part of my normal workflow. My basic approach is to remember things to an inbox.org file and then to process the inbox GTD-style. One thing I'm having a hard time figuring out is how to refile headers as top level headlines in a target file. I've customized org-refile with the following settings: ,---- | (setq org-refile-use-outline-path 'file) | (setq org-refile-targets '((org-agenda-files :maxlevel . 1) | (nil :maxlevel . 3))) `---- (Note: the second setting in org-refile-targets gives me additional, deeper targets in whatever file I'm visiting.) What I'd like to see is for maxlevel to include the possibility of filing an item as a top-level headline (at the bottom of the file). This would make it easier to create new top-level projects directly from my inbox. Otherwise, if the item I'm refiling doesn't naturally fit under any of the existing top level headlines in the target file, I have to (1) copy it by hand or (2) create a inbox heading in the target file, which I then have to empty again as part of a separate process (tedious with many org files). Perhaps this desired behavior is already possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt
