My problem was that the % values in org-agenda clock report are in different columns like the image below.

enter image description here

I wanted the % values of my clock report to be in a single column which looks like this:

enter image description here

I'm not sure if this has something to do with org-agenda-clockreport-parameter-plist but here is my settings for this variable

(setq org-agenda-clockreport-parameter-plist
  (quote (:link t :maxlevel 7 :fileskip0 t :compact t :narrow 80 :formula %)))

I think I messed up my org-mode settings here.

Could you please help me how to fix this?

Thank you.

  • How did you make the level indicators in the form ^-->?
