The default mode for org-mode is truncate-lines mode. You can customize this behaviour with org-startup-truncated. Type F1-v org-startup-truncated for a description, and then click on the customize link to change it.

You can invoke org-version: M-x org-version This should give you the version information of currently loaded org-mode.

You can also toggle it on-the-fly with the command toggle-truncate-lines, between the normal Emacs view and the normal org view. For example, use this: (define-key org-mode-map "\M-q" 'toggle-truncate-lines) M-q is bound to fill-paragraph by default, but probably you don't want to use it within org-mode.

You can do both! I use evernote for todos, reference, code snippetcs, recipes, receipts, bill scans and more. I use org-mode for todo lists, and can edit TODOs stored in evernote using emacs evernote-mode via the following in my .emacs: (require 'evernote-mode) (add-hook 'evernote-mode-hook (function (lambda () (auto-fill-mode 0) ...

Yes in org-mode you do archive DONE tasks (with in the same file or to a subling file) . you can use C-c C-x C-a for that. please refer the manual http://orgmode.org/manual/Capture-_002d-Refile-_002d-Archive.html

To see what I have done by day (there is probably a way to limit it to a particular period of time, but putting that together is a low priority for me), here is what I do. Start with C-c a that brings up the orgmode agenda menu, then L to display the timeline for the current file and finally l to turn log mode on. That gives me output that looks like this: ...

You can put the .el files pretty much where you want to, but you'll need to add the directory to your emacs load-path with something like: (setq load-path (cons "~/path/to/orgdir/lisp" load-path)) Stick that in your .emacs file. There's more info on the org-mode installation page.

Based on the specific features you ask for, I would guess that org-mode would not be ideal. In particular, its features for integration with browsing are rather limited. (Personally, I use it in combination with delicious; when I am taking notes on a topic, I include a line in my org-mode file which causes it to include the appropriately tagged links from my ...

Try C-c C-c on the top of the org file. It updates the local config of the file.

You can set org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled to t or a small number. Documentation: Non-nil means skip deadline prewarning when entry is also scheduled. This will apply on all days where a prewarning for the deadline would be shown, but not at the day when the entry is actually due. On that day, the deadline will be shown ...

For LaTeX output, here are some options for getting cleaner output: The function org-export-as-latex actually takes several parameters, one of which is a flag called BODY-ONLY. The prototype for this function is (org-export-as-latex ARG &optional HIDDEN EXT-PLIST TO-BUFFER BODY-ONLY PUB-DIR) for OrgMode 7.5. You can try the output by evaluating the ...

I am sure there is something more clever, but here is a powershell script will combine all files: $files = (dir *.txt) $outfile = "out.txt" $files | %{ $_.FullName | Add-Content $outfile Get-Content $_.FullName | Add-Content $outfile } Is it efficient? Not terribly... but it will work in a pinch.

I find hledger quite nice. It operates on text files in a fairly readable format. I think you could get org-capture to append new transactions to a file even though it's not an org-mode file, but I haven't tried it myself, as I mostly do CSV imports.

If you are using the org-mode package that came with the Emacs 22, then no need to install it. Just run the command M-x org-mode on any file that you intend to use as an org file. In addition, the line (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode)) that you added to your .emacs file will automatically start org-mode for any file that ends with the ...

It's not a two-way solution, but you could use the feeds that RTM makes available: RTM RSS feeds: http://www.rememberthemilk.com/help/answers/atom/rss.rtm Orgmode RSS feeds: http://orgmode.org/manual/release_7.4/org.html#RSS-Feeds This was also mentioned in this answer to a SO question: ...

The answer depends on your version of org-mode. Try these steps to fix the problem: Try adding the following to your init file: (require 'org-install) (require 'org-mobile) Make sure org-mode is in your load path. If that doesn't fix it, enter M-x org-version RET while in emacs. If it reports a version less than 7.4 (the current version as of this ...

In case more people come back to this question during the next years: since summer 2011 there is a really great solution: https://github.com/kiwanami/emacs-calfw

The variable org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown can be used to hide scheduled todos in the agenda if they also have a deadline and are already displayed with the deadline. I chose the value Not when scheduled today so that at least on the day the item is scheduled, I see it twice and then can delete the scheduled date. Documentation: ...

I'm pretty sure you're searching for the org-diary-class, mentionned in the Worg faq. Your exemple would then be (assuming classes end on December 20th) : ** 11:45-13:15 Differential equations <%%(org-diary-class 10 4 2012 12 20 2012 2)> You can add weeks where there are no classes after the last number (which is 2 for tuesday). If you don't ...

Too add other org-mode buffers to the refile list, you will need to add a line such as follows to your .emacs file. I took this from Brent Hansen's configuration (See here) ; Targets include this file and any file contributing to the agenda - up to 9 levels deep (setq org-refile-targets (quote ((nil :maxlevel . 9) ...

Use the :style parameter in your publishing project. For example: (setq org-publish-project-alist '(("Homepage" :base-directory "~/git/homepage/" :base-extension "org" :publishing-directory "~/public_html/" :publishing-function org-publish-org-to-html :style "<link rel=\"stylesheet\" href=\"style.css\" type=\"text/css\" ...

Sticky keys can help. I use them even with two hands, because they put less strain on your hands when pressing complex key combos. The main advantage of sticky keys is that you don't have to press all the keys of complex shortcut at the same time. So when you press C-x C-c you can do it by pressing Ctrl, releasing it, then pressing X, etc.

The Org-Mode Manual section on Deadlines and scheduling shows that you can set item-specific lead-times on the warnings for SCHEDULED: and DEADLINE:. Lead-time is how many days before the date it will appear in your Agenda to warn you of the upcoming task. Setting your timestamp to <Scheduled Date -0d> or <Deadline Date -0d> will set the ...
