on orgmode 8.3.2 I've got a large org-file. Offen, I need to export a subtree like this:
* Subtree to be exported :PROPERTIES: :EXPORT_FILE_NAME: /PATH/TO/FOLDER/filename :EXPORT_TITLE: :END: foo
I'd like to save the exported file in a project folder, as you can see in EXPORT_FILE_NAME . This is a different folder than folder where my large org file resides.
It would be very helpful to use link abbrevations in EXPORT_FILE_NAME :
(setq org-link-abbrev-alist '(("anglisky" . "~/Path/whereever/%s")))
in .emacs and write:
* Subtree to be exported :PROPERTIES: :EXPORT_FILE_NAME: anglisky:filename :EXPORT_TITLE: :END: foo
Possible? Feature Request?
The trick in my
org-link-abbrev-alist is that the path depends, e.g. on the OS of the computer. Under Windows, the path may be X:/..., under Linux the path is /home/<user>/whatever/else/
So it would be very helpful to use link abbrevation for the export file name.
I've been asking this question on the orgmode-mailing-list, but without an answer.
There has been an answer on the orgmode mailinglist: no, it is not possible to use the link abbrevations for the properties list. Sorry, I can't provide a link, Gmane seems to be down.
What a pity, but I'll find another way.
