I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to open links to info pages (Emacs manual) from org-mode without changing the current buffer to that info page?
The reason I would like to do this is because I have a list of helpful Emacs info pages in an org file and would like to be able to follow these links without leaving that org file.
Even if I have an info buffer already open in another window, it will just open that buffer in my current window and then follow the link instead of just going to that link using the current info buffer and not changing my current buffer.
It would also be nice to be able to open an info page like a help screen using keybindings, but I would at least like to be able to do this for links.
I have tried playing with org-link-frame-setup but have not been able to get it to work. The following is my current value for that variable in my init file.
;; Attempt to open info files in new windows. (setq org-link-frame-setup '((vm . vm-visit-folder-other-frame) (vm-imap . vm-visit-imap-folder-other-frame) (gnus . org-gnus-no-new-news) (file . find-file-other-window) (wl . wl-other-frame)))
I am using "GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2018-05-30"
