So this is a bit specialised. I've used org-mode for a while now but never before the agenda command to list a "stuck project". The sequence built in to do this with org-agenda is
C-c a #. This doesn't work out of the box for anyone with a UK keyboard because the
# key is on
Alt is bound to
Meta (I can't realistically change this) in Emacs. Actually I use Aquamacs but I don't think this is relevant.
I tried the method suggested in https://stackoverflow.com/a/4786456/1972730 namely
;; Allow hash to be entered (global-set-key (kbd "M-3") '(lambda () (interactive) (insert "#")))
and that does indeed allow me to enter
# symbols in many contexts but when I enter the
# symbol in the org-agenda context I get the error:
org-agenda-get-restriction-and-command: Wrong type argument: characterp, 134217779
So I could always type
but that's way too cumbersome. I suppose I could just find another key combination, but I want it to start with
C-c aand I'm not so sure how to proceed with this.
