  • 05:01 UTC (new) (history) 2018-03-18 My Org-mode hydra . . . . Marcin Borkowski I mentioned a lot of times that I am a big fan of Org-mode clocking feature. Even if I clock some things only for myself, I find it useful to learn how much time I actually need for some task. This is often surprising – for example, I think most people are completely unaware of how much you can accomplish by spending five to ten minutes every day on something (notice the “every day” part!). Of course, I want my clocking to be as smooth as possible.
  • 04:59 UTC (diff) (history) Comments on 2018-03-10 A tip on yanking . . . . Marcin Borkowski That's interesting. I don't use helm, but a quick search shows that Ivy has something similar. I'll try it out!


  • 05:14 UTC (new) (history) 2018-03-10 A tip on yanking . . . . Marcin Borkowski I have a few longer posts in the works, but for today I want to share a simple trick. We Emacs users all know and love the kill ring, and many of us know about M-y (yank-pop) and even C-u ... C-y (i.e., a numeric argment to yank). For those who don’t know: C-u 1 C-y is equivalent to plain C-y, but C-u 2 C-y (or just C-2 C-y) inserts the previous killed text (much like C-y M-y), and also marks it as the current one. With higher arguments, it inserts earlier kills.



  • 07:13 UTC (new) (history) 2018-02-25 Simple way of assigning formulas to fields and columns in Org tables . . . . Marcin Borkowski Today I’m going to share a simple trick concerning Org-mode spreadsheet tables. I knew that I could press C-u C-c = in an Org-mode table cell to install a formula in that cell (or C-c = to install a column formula). However, there is a simpler way: you can just type := followed by the formula and press TAB, RET or C-c C-c. (Without a colon, it installs a column formula.) Very handy! (And it was in the manual all along… Once more I learned that at least skimming through the manual from time to time is a good idea!)
