See the end of the file for license conditions. Please send Org bug reports to emacs-orgmode@gnu.org. * Incompatible changes ** Emacs 21 support has been dropped :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[http://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead. ** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely, but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this last-minute save. ** New keys for TODO sparse trees :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done states) and =C-c / T= (specific states). ** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.4 :END: The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use =org-agenda-span= instead. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this. ** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes= :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call, for example for the special symbol support it needs. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the =[EXTRA]= place holder): #+begin_src emacs-lisp (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil org-export-latex-packages-alist nil) #+end_src /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified setup./ There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX packages that need to be included in all classes. The header definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below). The two new variables are: 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs. Normally you should not change this variable. The only reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using Org-mode functionality that needs it. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all classes. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX document are: 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes= 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:= If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can put the following macro-like place holders into the header: #+begin_example [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff #+end_example If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you should revise that customization and remove any package calls that are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This applies to the following packages: - inputenc - fontenc - fixltx2e - graphicx - longtable - float - wrapfig - soul - t1enc - textcomp - marvosym - wasysym - latexsym - amssymb - hyperref If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package you are using, you can remove it from =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that some of the advertised export features of Org will not work properly. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of the header. ** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write code using it. ** org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist' has changed :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly. ** Deleted =org-mode-p= :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: This function has been deleted: please update your code. * Important new features ** New Org to ODT exporter :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org. To use it, it C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation for more information on how to customize it. ** org-capture.el is now the default capture system :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual section [[http://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]]. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more possibilities for capturing different types of data. See [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details. To switch over to the new system: 1. Run : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET to get a translated version of your remember templates into the new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work, but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good place to modify your templates. After running this command, enter the customize buffer for this variable with : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the customization. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did with org-remember: : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture) If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once you have decided to move over completely to the new implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong with using both system in parallel. * New libraries ** New Org libraries *** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: Implement links to eshell buffers. *** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens. To use, put the following in your init file: #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE (require 'org-special-blocks) #+END_EXAMPLE The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not protected, as text inside environments generally is. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean anything. *** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org. He also wrote a [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it. *** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.34 :END: Targets like =<>= can now be found by Emacs' etag functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file /org-ctags.el/. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will call function to do something special with text links. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution. *** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.34 :END: This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the Org-mode manual: : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]] Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution. ** New Babel libraries - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz) - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov) - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte) - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga) - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte) - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago) - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte) * Other new features and various enhancements ** Hyperlinks *** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.6 :END: Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all standard bibtex reference types and fields. The key new functions are - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available for the specific reference =type= of the current headline. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level, using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry. *** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: You can now create links from messages. This is particularily useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch. *** Modified link escaping :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: David Maus worked on org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]: : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http: : link). : : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning : percent escaped links are solved. Thanks a lot to David for this work. *** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a file, org-store-link' will store a link to the directory. Patch by Stephen Eglen. *** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command string to be executed. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax =file:/doc.pdf::=, you can add the following entry to org-file-apps: #+begin_example Extension: \.pdf::$$[0-9]+$$\' Command: evince "%s" -p %1 #+end_example Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect. ** Dates and time *** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.7 :END: You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w" when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")= will work on the current entry. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this! *** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date= :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this #+begin_example 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05 2/5 --> -02-05 #+end_example ** Agenda *** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: This option used to be nil' by default. This now has a default value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for details. Thanks to Carsten for this. *** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt= :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out entries using a function. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation. *** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.4 :END: Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect. *** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.4 :END: =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today, you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days. Thanks to John Wiegley for this. ** Exporting *** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: When set to t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the docstring of these variable for details about available %-sequences. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same way: t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a formatting string will insert a string. *** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8 :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c C-e u=, respectively. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]". Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state your preference. *** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export. *** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: This behavior can be configured with the new option variable =org-format-latex-signal-error=. *** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.34 :END: Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[http://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER section]] in the manual for more details. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example for how this community can achieve a much better result than any individual could. ** Refiling *** Refile targets can now be cached :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=. *** New logging support for refiling :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be added to this entry. For details, see the new option =org-log-refile=. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea. ** Completion *** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegleys pcomplete.el :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.4 :END: Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code. ** Tables *** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point= :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.8 :END: See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of Org's core. Thanks to Juan! *** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c = :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.7 :END: When editing a field with =C-c =, the field's coordinate will the displayed in the buffer. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect. *** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.6 :END: If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in Calc formulas or Elisp formulas: | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total | |--------+--------+---------| | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 | #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are optional. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and feedback on this. *** Implement formulas applying to field ranges :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows : things like : : @3= : @2$2..@5$7= : @I$2..@II\$4= : : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a : table. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this. *** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.4 :END: Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also, there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot. ** Lists *** Improved handling of lists :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more indented than it. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the variable org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical counters like [@c] or [@W]. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are controlling this: org-list-forbidden-blocks', and org-list-export-context'. 4. Improve newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text and make paragraphs and still not break the list. 5. Improve org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and make every line in region an item. It permits to easily integrate paragraphs inside a list. 6. fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no blank line around, without breaking list structure. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this! ** Inline display of linked images :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.36 :END: Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links that have no description part will be inlined. ** Implement offsets for ordered lists :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.36 :END: If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different from 1, you can now do it like this: : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12 ** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.36 :END: In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents, augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes into account all header arguments, and variables. A new key-binding C-c M-b p' bound to org-babel-expand-src-block' can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging). tangling The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline properties or in tables. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column names, and rownames across all languages. ** Editing Convenience and Appearance *** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.7 :END: This command will copy the visible text in the region into the kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it! *** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k= :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a request by Scott Otterson. *** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts. :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and superscripts, see the variable =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible. *** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the following new faces: =org-document-title= =org-document-info= =org-document-info-keyword= In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to make the corresponding keywords disappear. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature. *** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face property is affected by this setting. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson. *** in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: Requested by Michael Brand. *** Better level cycling function :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement. *** Adaptive filling :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">" comments to be filled correctly. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch. *** org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el) :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change. *** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch. ** Clocking *** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.7 :END: Using =S-M-= on CLOCK log timestamps will increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea. *** Localized clock tables :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.5 :END: Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls available translated strings. *** Show clock overruns in mode line :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect. *** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is =nil=. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition. ** Misc *** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.4 :END: There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes. *** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 7.01 :END: This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a property) back. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this change. *** New helper functions in org-table.el :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people. #+begin_example org-table-get org-table-put org-table-current-line org-table-goto-line #+end_example *** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target node. This was requested by Tom. *** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent :PROPERTIES: :OrgVersion: 6.35 :END: This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for example by viewing from the agenda.
