I love org-mode, but one of the things that has always bugged me is that, if the point is after a collapsed subtree's ellipsis, pressing
TAB doesn't expand it. For example, if the point is here (represented by
* Grandiose Plans ** Save the world...| ** Colonize Mars...
...and I press
TAB, nothing happens. Instead, I have to put the point here:
* Grandiose Plans ** Save the world|... ** Colonize Mars...
...and then I can expand the subtree.
Note that using
C-e to move the cursor to the end of a heading doesn't fix this behavior, it just works around it. For example, look at this tree:
* Long level one heading foo bar baz fizz buzz|... ** Shorter level two heading...
The point is at the end of the first heading. If I press the down arrow or
C-n to move down a line, the point will be here:
* Long level one heading foo bar baz fizz buzz... ** Shorter level two heading...|
TAB will not expand the second-level heading.
The idea is to fix
TAB so that it will expand the heading anyway. That way, instead of having to do
C-n C-e TAB, one can just do
I haven't been able to find out anything about fixing this behavior. Am I missing something, or does some code need to be written? Thanks.
