Subject: [PATCH] Add %L (the link content *not* as a full link) to Capture expansions
Date: Wed, 09 Sep 2020 19:13:22 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87pn6uij4t.fsf@flintfam.org> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 459 bytes --]


In an attempt at automating a part of my workflow, I found that
org-capture's %l didn't quite fit what I needed.  Normally,
org-store-link does the right thing, but for some capture tasks, I want
to custom generate the description, so %l doesn't work.  I've attached a
patch that adds %L, a version that doesn't add the link brackets.
