From: Maxim Nikulin <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Indirect buffers, org-store-link, and org-insert-link Date: Fri, 21 Aug 2020 18:30:31 +0700 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) #+TITLE: Indirect buffers, ~org-store-link~, and ~org-insert-link~ #+begin_abstract It is inconvenient to work with links pointing to =CUSTOM_ID= anchors when indirect buffers are involved. Either file name is added to link or appropriate link target is not stored at all. #+end_abstract * Introduction I have tried to use indirect buffers (=C-u C-c C-x C-b=) to quickly jump between 2 or 3 location in an org file. The intention was to add some details to notes and to cross-link them using =CUSTOM_ID= properties. Unfortunately behavior of ~org-store-link~ and ~org-insert-link~ functions is not perfect in such use case. ~org-goto~ interface =C-u C-c C-j= is not a suitable alternative to avoid indirect buffers especially when frame is split into to windows and ~org-occur~ is invoked to find something. * Regular buffer link target :PROPERTIES: :CUSTOM_ID: reg_buf_target :END: Save link to this section using =M-x (org-store-link)= * Link stored from regular buffer inserted to regular buffer Insert link with =C-u C-u C-u C-c C-l=, choose the one with =#= (it is the last one and inserted by default) and clear link description Actual result is just as the expected one: : [[#reg_buf_target]] I would like to get similar links while working with indirect buffers containing parts of this file. Store link once more if it was inserted without triple prefix * Indirect buffer Open an indirect buffer for this subtree ~M-x (org-tree-to-indirect-buffer)~ and switch to it ** Link inserted to indirect buffer :PROPERTIES: :CUSTOM_ID: indirect_buf_target :END: Insert link stored from the regular buffer. Actual result: : [[file:indirect-link.org::#reg_buf_target]] Expected result: no file name since link inserted to the same file : [[#reg_buf_target]] Run =M-x org-store-link= to push link to this header. ** Link copied from indirect buffer and inserted to indirect buffer =C-u C-u C-u C-c C-l= to insert link to previous section Actual result: only link to header text is available for insertion. Expected result: there is no problem to choose and to insert link as : [[#indirect_buf_target]] Close indirect buffer. * Link stored in indirect buffer and inserted to regular buffer Obviously, since a link with =CUSTOM_ID= anchor was not created inside indirect buffer, it is impossible to create here a link as : [[#indirect_buf_target]] using completion menu. * Version #+begin_src emacs-lisp (concat (emacs-version) "\n" (org-version nil 't)) #+end_src #+RESULTS: : GNU Emacs 26.3 (build 2, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.24.14) : of 2020-03-26, modified by Debian : Org mode version 9.3.7 (release_9.3.7-716-g312a64 @ /home/test/src/emacs/org-mode/lisp/) Is it possible to mark indirect buffers (add some properties, etc.) in such way that there will be no problems to obtain and compare file name in ~org-store-link~ and ~org-insert-link~ functions? P.S. Maybe links to header text were fixed in https://email@example.com/
