I installed a package that changes emacs windows using Shift+arrow, and it works in various modes I use but not in org-mode. Is there a reason why org-mode shadows this command?
Add the following to your config, like described in "Packages that conflict with Org mode":
(add-hook 'org-shiftup-final-hook 'windmove-up) (add-hook 'org-shiftleft-final-hook 'windmove-left) (add-hook 'org-shiftdown-final-hook 'windmove-down) (add-hook 'org-shiftright-final-hook 'windmove-right)
org-support-shift-select customization variable to "Everywhere except timestamps"
(setq org-support-shift-select 'always), otherwise shift+arrows will still have org-mode keybidnings on headings.
