Hi Carsten, Alan & Co,
sorry for not following this thread closely. If the idea here is deleted
from your list already or is not feasable, just ignore it.
Refcard as info file
How about maintaining the extended refcard as a second texinfo file?
After the install, we would have two resulting info files: org and
We could then bind a key to some `org-open-ref-card' function, that
simply calls (info "(orgrefcard)").
As for help in general:
How about binding a key (e.g. `C-c h') to a function calling (info
&optional file-or-node) to get context-help while in an org-file?
(info "(org)tags") if on a tag,
(info "(org)properties and columns") if in `#+COLUMNS' line
...and so on.
Often more than one section will match, so a mapping would be needed
as well, as some sort of completion.
