A little data destruction protection.  I put together a table and had to 
destroy all copies of it after having tried to set up averages for a 
couple columns.  The averages didn't work and data got zeroed out and I 
lost an entire column of data that way.  One of my problems I'm sure was 
caused because I tried data gathering first then tried modifying the 
original table and adding the formulas later.  Next time I attempt 
anything with org and mathematics, I'll write my data set down in braille 
and ought to have done that with this data set as well.  What might have 
helped here a little is if a column is going to be put into existing 
columns the column inserts rather than overwrites any column that might be 
there.  The broken table I ended up with had six columns and two of those 
were single space columns out to the right with nothing in them.  There 
ought to have been before I did anything with formulas at most four 
columns in the table.  I did enter time stamps in as two separated date 
and time fields originally then when I read what all could be put into 
time stamps, I consolidated those first two columns into a single time 
stamp column.  I don''t know if that consolidation did further damage or 
not.

Hi Jude,

when deleting data with just one keystroke (like in the case you
describe), there is always the possibility to _undo_ with C-/

Is there something more we can do?

Best,

Recommendation: use something like GIT (or one of the other fine source control systems out there) to checkpoint your work, and save the history of your org files.  It can even be set up in emacs to periodically save all org files and check in a snapshot.


HTH,
Brian

This feature creates a lot of junk text when attachment folder gets very
large. For example, I keep my travel photos as attachments. There can be
hundreds of photos in a single attachment folder. Showing all the photo
names in a property would be not very useful.

On the other hand, if more people are interested, this feature can be
resurrected as a user-option (disabled by default).

It works now and its awesome! I cannot believe that they had this
feature and removed it. I am a very happy man and I cannot thank you enough.

If you have time please add your answer and function to the original
post. I feel others will make use of it too.

You can try:

(defun org-attach-save-file-list-to-property (dir)
  "Save list of attachments to ORG_ATTACH_FILES property."
  (when-let* ((files (org-attach-file-list dir)))
    (org-set-property "ORG_ATTACH_FILES" (mapconcat #'identity files ", "))))
(add-hook 'org-attach-after-change-hook #'org-attach-save-file-list-to-property)

Also, note that the list of files will only be updated if you
attach/delete files calling org-attach. If you change the attachment
folder manually, you will need to run M-x org-attach-sync.

Ihor

I have copied the code to my dot Emacs, but now when I try to add an attachment now, it generates this error:

run-hook-with-args: Wrong number of arguments: (lambda nil "Save list of
attachments to ORG_ATTACH_FILES property." (when-let* ((dir

You can still implement it on your side for personal use. There is
org-attach-after-change-hook where you can put a custom function saving
the attached file list (org-attach-file-list) into a property.

I am very curios to see how this looked like and how it worked. With a

Somewhere in my old files, I have a reference to an Emacs mode for
entering music visually in a kind of ASCII mode, written by Neil Jerram
if I remember correctly.  But this was before Han-Wen and Jan wrote
Lilypond.  Now that Lilypond exists, it is an immensely more interesting
avenue, in my opinion.  Neil code would be fairly oldish anyway.

I never tried using both Org and Lilypond as suggested, but it looks
like a very appealing idea, I should try it.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Org-mode has proven tremendously useful in writing musical analyses, but
it would also be nice to provide musical examples in plain text.

Is there anything like this available? If not, I may try to do it
myself. I'm finally getting my act together and finishing the Emacs Lisp
Intro; but any help pointing me to the right examples, or the right
conceptual frameworks would be much appreciate.

Here is more or less what I would want:

----------
----------
----------
----------
----------

Pretend that is the staff. The user places the cursor on the staff, and
therefore enters "note entry mode." The "note-entry" function is passed
three args: one for the note, two for the rhythmic value. So if the user
presses "F," "F" is passed as the first argument; if the user enters
"8", "8" is passed as the second argument; if the user enters ".", "."
is passed as the third argument.

This produces a dotted 8th F note on the staff. The third argument is
optional (since not all rhythmic values are dotted), and its value is
nil by default.

Anyway, that is a draft of what I would want. May already exist with
slightly different functionality.

Useful, thanks!

I added it to org-hacks.org under this section :

  "Reschedule agenda items to today with a single command"

Thanks for spending so much time/energy considering it, despite the
fact that it would be incoherent with the rest of your interface!

Okay.

You know, I have `f' and `b' bound to org-agenda-date-later/-earlier,
and that would be perfectly adequate for me, *if* I got appropriate
visual feedback.  The problem is the red "S2" or "S3" I'm looking at
doesn't change on the fly when I reschedule.  And it's hard to train
myself not to hit `f' twice when I see S2 :-)

That's a good idea. I don't think I need etags in my agenda buffer, so
`M-.' works.

After giving this some thought, I don't this this can be done in a  
clear and non-confusing way.  I do think it is necessary to somehow  
change the date relative to what the previously set date is.  The only  
way to make this half way transparently is to show that date in the  
prompt as the default date.

There was lots of good advice to so what you want in different ways,
including not rescheduling, or using bulk actions in the agenda.

Finally, if you still want a fast command doing this:

(defun org-agenda-reschedule-to-today ()
   (interactive)
   (flet ((org-read-date (&rest rest) (current-time)))
     (call-interactively 'org-agenda-schedule)))

I use S-right on the agenda buffer, which is quite easy.

P.S. My reason to do this every day: day planning and regaining
consciouness about things to be done. Takes 1 minute at most.

Because there's always something I didn't get done yesterday, and I
often have pushed too many tasks forward onto a given day, and don't
want to see more than about 15 TODOs in my agenda on any given day.

Because then they show up in the consciousness like a failure instead
of as just what I have to do today, and they tend to pile up and lead
to a state of despair, where the agenda is too daunting to face.  They
need to be processed.  I need to re-negotiate the contract I made with
myself about when they were getting done.

Just curious: Why don't you use the bulk action?

a) Mark all items with `m'
b) `B' `s' `.' RET.

For 20 items, thats:
20x `m' + 4 Keys for b) = 24 keypresses
(if those items are right next to each other and need no navigation)

Your approach would need 20 item x `S Ret' = 40 keypresses :).

Hi David,

Why are you rescheduling items everyday?  That seems like a lot of
overhead to me.  What's wrong with leaving the item on the first
scheduled date and just allow the agenda to show how many days it has
already been scheduled for -- until you mark it DONE?

Alternatively if it's a repeating task, you can use a single day
repeater and just mark the item DONE to move it to the next day.

One thing I've been trying to do is minimize the amount of time I spend
on overhead stuff for my tasks and trading that for time I actually do
work on completing the tasks instead.

Regards,
Bernt

Hi All,

I have to reschedule quite a few items daily.  Often they're
yesterday's items that I need to reschedule for today.  

  `C-c C-s . RET' 

is a bit much typing for that, so I re-bound `S' to
org-agenda-schedule.  But 

  `S . RET' 

is still a bit much.  I'd like it if the default when rescheduling was
always for today, instead of the date the item is already scheduled
for, so I could 

  `S RET'

in the usual case.  What about a customizable option to set the
default schedule-for date?

Slow, yes.  Feature incomplete, no.  There are several things w3 can do
that w3m cannot.  Table navigation, support for aural css, fontification
of all tags (pre, code, and the like immediately come to mind),
different attributes for h[1-6] tags, I am aware of nothing w3m can do
that w3 cannot.  Also, since w3 is pure lisp it can be extended in ways
that w3m cannot.

Please correct me if I am wrong but this seems to be the wrong solution
for w3 and w3m.  I don't use a graphical browser because of my need for
a screen reader.  I use emacs and emacspeak almost exclusively for my
computing needs. Sorry I wasn't clear in my needs and use.

Thanks.  This does work for w3m but using w3 it returns this:

You night want to use this:

  http://github.com/SebastianRose/worglet/tree/master


Which is an attempt to make `org-browser-url.el' and
`org-annotation-handler.el' work without any external dependencies on
shell scripts.

Also, you'll need to set up only one protocol in Firefox/Opera/OS.

The file provides three functions of interest:

  org-remember
  org-store-link
  org-open-source

which do just what their names say.



`org-browser-url.el' and `org-annotation-handler.el' are in the
'contrib' subdirectory of the Org-mode distribution.


Best,

  Sebastian

When I use w3m, the annotation substitution (%a) in the remember
template does the trick. It grabs the url and title of the current page
(using org-store-link).

For instance, if I call remember while visiting the org-mode home page,
%a in the remember template is replaced by:

[[http://orgmode.org/][Org-Mode: Your Life in Plain Text]]

Matt

I've been trying to make an org-remember template that will grab the
title of the webpage I want to create a link to.  This seems to not be
possible, although I could very well be wrong.  I was curious as to
whether a new keyword could be created for w3 and w3m links.  Seems that

I think what you need is colum view for properties, rather than tables.

Each property is like a field, and you switch between values easily.
You can select the property you want to display in the column view.
Each headline will be displayed as a table row in column view.
And finally, you can capture this column view with C-c C-x r.

See details in the manual:

  (info "(org)Column view")
  (info "(org)Capturing Column View)

I think it's worth giving it a try.  Tables have their own ways of
handling cells and "buttons" would be confusing IMO.

Hi fellows,

I have a question/feature request.  Often tables are a very easy and 
apropriate way to structure information that are fluent.  I work at the 
following table (e.g.):

| Hotel | Manager | price | requested | booked |
-----------------------------------------------
| blah   | Mayer    | 250   |                 |              |
| bluh   | Schulze   | 260   |                |               |
------------------------------------------------

Now here comes what would be neat: The tables lists all Hotels who offer 
seminar rooms, which person is banquett manager, the price for the 
room.  Since I often book rooms for seminars (or invite people to 
workshops etc.) managing bookings/invitations via tables is more 
effective than doing it with TODO-items (more so because the same table 
is used over and over again).  What would help greatly would be a way to 
manage fields the same way as with TODO items: A key-string would place 
a "NO" "RUNNING" "ANSWERED" button right there ... same way as with 
TODO-items.

Is this already possible?  Haven't found it in the manual.

Greetings, ray

Every funtion needs an argument list, even if it is the empty one:

(defun my-daily-insertion ()

Correct, but better use  (goto-char (point-min)), has fewer side 
effects.

Looks all fine to me.

I started tinkering, this being my first macro.

I can't say its behaving as I expected.

(defun my-daily-insertion
  (interactive)
  (beginning-of-buffer)
  (re-search-forward "DAILY-INSERTION-POINT")
  (forward-line -1)
  (insert "*** " (format-time-string "%Y%m%d" (current-time)) )
)

I'd welcome input.

The way I'm reading that macro, it'll prompt me for a date, etc. That
would be useful for creating a range of dates in a tree if I needed to
define a time period.

I guess I didn't explain myself clearly. I wanted to generate those
dated headings under the "Daily" heading for the current date
only. Just a shortcut so I can hit a single key to add todo items for
today, and have them added to my chronological "Daily" tree.

I've just found that I'm managing TODO and agenda scheduled items
well, but I didn't have a good way to handle all the little
miscellaneous items that pop up. No reason to spend time filing them
elsewhere, just a date would suffice. It also helps keep the tree
sparse when searching.

The cl macro "loop" is your friend....

(defun my-date-tree (y1 y2)
   (interactive "nFirst year: \nnLast year: ")
   (require 'calendar)
   (loop for y from y1 to y2 do
     (message "Doing year %d..." y)
     (insert "* " (format "%4d" y) "\n")
     (loop for m from 1 to 12 do
       (insert "** " (format "%4d-%02d" y m) "\n")
       (loop for d from 1 to 31 do
         (when (= m (car
		    (calendar-gregorian-from-absolute
		     (calendar-absolute-from-gregorian
		      (list m d y)))))
           (insert "*** " (format "%4d-%02d-%02d" y m d) "\n"))))))

Hope this helps

I've gotten in a habit of storing my todo's in the following format,
and I'm curious if there's a way to automate this...

* Daily
** 2006-09
*** 2006-09-25
**** TODO Item One

I don't always have an item for each day, its sparsely populated, but
I'd like to automate making the first few headings.

Any suggestions? Even a macro? ;]
