I am using Org-mode in conjunction with an Android tablet. I have customized Org-mode and keep files in Dropbox. After sync the Android side is not implementing any customization.

Copied this code to the head of the file:

(setq org-log-into drawer "LOGBOOK")
(setq org-use-fast-todo-selection '(prefix))
(SETQ ORG-todo-keywords
          '((sequence "TODO(t!)" "|" "DONE(d!)" "REPEAT(r!)")))
(setq org-todo-keyword-faces
          '(("TODO" . org-warning)
            ("DONE" . "yellow")
            ("REPEAT" . (:foreground "blue" :weight bold)))

But it does not get implemented in the Android side.

What am I missing?

  • Orgzly is not a full implementation of either Emacs or org-mode. Have you looked into the customization options in the app?

Orgzly doesn't execute elisp code in your org files, so it won't pick up the settings. It also doesn't see per-file settings of todo keywords (the #+SEQ_TODO and #+TYP_TODO keywords). You can specify your todo keywords and which represent DONE states in Orgzly's settings.
