in org-mode, is there a command to select the entire text in one column in one row? I know i can move to the beginning/set-mark/goto the end of the column. But i am wondering if there is one command already for that.
I asked the question in the org-mailing list. I was pointed to this function which does what I needed: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2016-05/msg00240.html
(defun org-table-mark-field () "Mark the current table field." (interactive) ;; Do not try to jump to the beginning of field if the point is already there (when (not (looking-back "|\\s-?")) (org-table-beginning-of-field 1)) (set-mark-command nil) (org-table-end-of-field 1))
