I have several repeating tasks (some with the "habit" style). I like my setup but now I have a lot state changes log just below the not drawers. For example:

** TODO Random Task                                                   :dailies:
SCHEDULED: <2015-12-03 Thu 13:00 ++1d>
:LAST_REPEAT: [2015-12-02 Wed 16:59]
:ID:       BA24BAA8-5094-49C9-A014-619C8D98F25E
:STYLE:    habit

- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2015-12-02 Wed 16:59]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2015-12-01 Tue 14:16]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2015-11-27 Fri 18:55]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2015-11-23 Mon 22:02]
- State "DONE"       from "TODO"       [2015-11-18 Wed 17:02]

is there a way to hide the Lines: - State "DONE" from "TODO" ...?

You can customize org-log-into-drawer to t rather than nil.

This way, all state changes and notes will be stored into a drawer called LOGBOOK.

You can give another name to this drawer if you wish, or you can make this customization for a file only (adding a #+STARTUP: logdrawer directive), or inside a heading (by setting the LOG_INTO_DRAWER property).


Change the org-log-repeat variable to nil.

(setq org-log-repeat nil)

See manual, section 8.3.2 note 75.
