Following Rainer König's example in this video, I've customized
org-log-into-drawer to be
LOGBOOK. I've also added timestamps for various state changes such as from
DONE, so that when these events happen, entries are added to the
:LOGBOOK: drawer. I'm also using
org-add-note to add notes unrelated to state changes.
The problem with this approach is that the notes are intermingled with the state change entries. For example:
** DONE set up date-based plan files
- State "DONE" from "DOING" [2017-09-13 Wed 15:18]
- Note taken on [2017-09-13 Wed 15:07] \\
To add a timestamp, do ~C-c !~ (for inactive ones anyway) in insert mode.
- State "DOING" from "NEXT" [2017-09-13 Wed 14:25]
CLOCK: [2017-09-13 Wed 14:22]--[2017-09-13 Wed 15:00] => 0:38
- State "NEXT" from "TODO" [2017-09-12 Tue 15:45]
It's not easy to visually pick out the notes (which are often more relevant) from the state change events and clock events.
So my question is: can I separate the notes from the other information? I'd prefer for notes to go into their own
:NOTES: drawer, but I'd also accept an answer that added notes to the body of the headline, outside of a drawer.
(Note: I'm aware of this question, but as far as I can tell it controls the notes and other entries together, without distinction, so it won't suffice for my purposes.)
