Hi,
 To follow up on my earlier post. I modified the diary-schedule function at
http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/DiaryMode to select more than one 
dayname (e.g. Tuesday and Thursday) and a time-period, over a block of dates. 
I am trying to figure out how to include this function in an org file, similar
to what can be done with built-in diary functions,

That's a pretty good idea. But the code seems incomplete.
sr-kill-startup-buffer is not defined (symbol's function definition is
void).

Re: Pop up reference card

Hello

I find this the ideal way to display a short screen of shortcuts, and I will work with it.  However, when I type any key, nothing happens.  Perhaps this is related to Sven's message?

I had a popup screen, an ascii char code popup, and a tab popup.  I think I can adapt them, if I can still find them.

Thank you for this information.

ALan

format table column

greetings!

i'm wondering if there is a way, within the org-mode table-formatting facilities, or within an org-mode
css style block, to define text formatting on a per-column basis.
i.e. to make a table which, when exported to html, will have column A all center-aligned, column B all
right-aligned, and column C all left-aligned.

it would, of course, be preferable to have the format definition somehow defined such that editing,
removing, or adding rows to the table doesn't disturb the formatting -- i.e. anything added to column A
becomes center-aligned, etc.

thanks, in advance, for any clues you may have!
cheers!

I don't think org-mode supports repeated entries with an end date (but I
could be wrong there).  For cases where I can just let it repeat forever
I just make one weekly repeater entry for each day (i.e. Monday,
Wednesday, Friday would be 3 tasks, which repeat weekly.)

It's not very elegant but it works (for me).

Maybe someone else on the list has a better idea...

The following was my help for the /Cx-6 keymap.  I cleaned it up a
little, but it seems to also insert an expanded minibuffer on my

Sorry, I should have been clearer... What I was meaning was a table of 
contents but organised by tags (perhaps in alphabetical order) e.g.

1.0
   FIXED Compiler warnings
2.0
   BUG project crashes on network failure
2.1
   FEATUREREQUEST Add a new button to UI
2.3
   FEATUREREQUEST Add email support
3.0
   FEATUREREQUEST Support X,Y,Z
BUILD
   FIXED compiler warnings
DB
   BUGREPORT error thrown on data entry
   FEATUREREQUEST Support X,Y,Z
EMAIL
   FEATUREREQUEST Add email support
EXP
   FEATUREREQUEST Add email support
   FEATUREREQUEST Support X,Y,Z

etc...

Then each heading would link back to the tag in the table of contents, 
so you could reasonably (2 clicks) easily jump to other items with that 
same tag.  But I have just switched to your org-info-js, which is a 
great piece of work!  And I think your idea of somehow dynamically 
assembling a list of outlines that have a tag, would be ideal!

Yes, I've seen this and it's similar to what I regularly do with firefox 
and type ahead find.  Very nice, but it doesn't quite seem to be the 
same as a being able to easily navigate around tags.... Am I missing 
something?

I already have been, and thanks again for org-info-js!

First is the cumulative grade column 15/O.
Presently, I add the available grades divided by the available total. When I grade each additional
assignment, I add that to the total in this 
column's formula manually which gives me the cumulative. Is there a way to automatically do this or am I
expecting too much? I have removed 
grades in column K, L, M so I can show the difference in calculation between column O and P. Assuming there are
10 assessments for the class in 
the semester and 7 have been graded. Column O shows the grade for each student as 100% of the total grade.
Column P shows the appropriate 
fraction of the total grade for the assessments as a fraction of the overall knowing that there are 3 more
assignments ungraded. Column O gives 
me a better snapshot of each students performance at any point in time.

The second problem is numbering the students in column 2/B.
I want to manage the number for each student so that it does not matter when I add or remove a student in the
roster. Right now students are 
registering for the fall classes and I add their names according to their alphabetized last names. I have to
re-sequence this column constantly. 
I appreciate all the help that anyone can throw at these problems.

Re: Displaying column titles in column view

Carsten Dominik <dominik <at> uva.nl> writes:

> `org-columns-display-here-title'

I figured out the main problem last night: I've had the following
configuration in my XEmacs configuration for about the last seven years:

,----
| ;; turn off gutter
| (and (boundp 'default-gutter-visible-p)
|      (set-specifier default-gutter-visible-p nil))
`----

The intention there was to defeat the buffer tabs that appear in the
gutter by default. That was too strong of a defeat, as org-mode's
columns use the top gutter to display the column header line.

Replacing the above configuration with the following made the header
line visible:

,----
| ;; turn off gutter tabs
| (setq gutter-buffers-tab-enabled nil)
`----

There are still many things that are odd about the header line. If I
have a vertically-split window, with an org-mode file in the bottom
window, and I activate column mode, the header appears above the top
window. Maybe that's the only place that the top gutter can appear.

Also, the column names without explicit widths specified are truncated,
perhaps to squeeze them down to fit the actual data in the most compact
way.

Taking the same sample file as I shared at the start of this thread,
here's what I see now:


Note the asterisks in the second column, and the extra third column with
the first letter as the the item name. The values in the second column
for the first two entries are correct (2 and 3), but the third entry has
a value of 40, which appears here as a period.

I don't have any of these problems, but I'm using GNU Emacs.  I do
know that org-mode has a completely different implementation of column
view for XEmacs.

You might want to look in org-colview-xemacs.el and do some light
comparisons with org-colview.el.
