In org-agenda, it is possible to enable a "follow mode" so that moving the point over an agenda item automatically displays the linked item in another window.

In ivy-occur, you need to press f to get this, it doesn't happen automatically.

Is there a way to make j and k behave like j f and k f?

    Though not identical, n (next-error-no-select) and p (previous-error-no-select) are close enough to j f and k f, respectively, for most of my uses. You can also enable next-error-follow-minor-mode by typing C-c C-f so that j and k behave like n and p, respectively. I'm not a big user of ivy-occur, though, so take these suggestions with a pinch of salt.

From the doc:

c runs the command ivy-occur-toggle-calling (found in ivy-occur-grep-mode-map),
which is an interactive native compiled Lisp function in ‘ivy.el’.

It is bound to c.


Toggle ‘ivy-calling’.
