I irregularly see that org-capture has led to the disappearance of a newline, leaving me with lines like these

Which could make me forget all about that reading group. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

(There is not so much information here, but I'm hoping someone will have had the same problem.)

  • I've had the same problem.. and finally the only solution has been insert a new line at the end of the template: '(("a" "Axenda" entry (file+headline "~/axenda.org" "daily") "* %?\n")) <.. '\n' – Pedro Nov 26 '17 at 21:39
  • I have had this exact same problem as well. This happens when you capture anything. For instance I have this template: ("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline "~/org/todo.org" "Tasks") "* TODO %?\n SCHEDULED: %t\n %a\n") But if you delete the newline while capturing a Todo entry, or write anything on the last line in the template you will actually remove the newline separating the heading you're entering from the next one, or you'll put some text on the line before the heading. This is really frustrating, and I'm surprised more people don't run into this problem! – Calvin Beck Nov 5 '18 at 20:54
  • Is this an answer to the question or an "I too am having this problem" comment? – Drew Nov 5 '18 at 21:58
