Hi Marco !

I agree with you. But this does not work. Say I have a buffer with this content :

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
put point HERE and C-<return>
Some more stuff 
* Heading
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When point is at HERE and I C-<return>, org inserts a new asterisk on
the after "stuff", but  on the same line → not a proper heading.

Yes. But I get the same behavior with 
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
put point HERE and C-<return>
Some more stuff 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The asterisk is inserted right after "stuff", on the same line → not
a proper heading.

Yes, you’re right. It currently does not respect the content before
first heading. Therefore it’s not a fix for the behavior of
It’s just the quickest workaround I’ve come up with to make my own
function work (in my use-case, when I call that function, either point
is at point-min in a brand new buffer, or point is below the first
