I use spacemacs only for an org-mode todo file. I recently re-installed spacemacs and emacs and noticed a behavior change.

Let's say I have a file like:

* TODO Header
    - List item 1
    - List item 2

In inline mode, if I do Alt+Ret,Ret it used to be context specific. If I was on a header, then it would insert a new header at the same level; if I was on a list item line then it would insert a new list item. Now, no matter what line I am on it inserts a new header.

  • It still does what you expect for me (context specific insertions). What versions of emacs, org-mode and spacemaces are you using? – Tyler May 9 '19 at 18:06
  • spacemacs: 0.200.13; emacs: 26.1; org-mode: 9.2.3 – Jeremy May 9 '19 at 20:57
  • You mean org-meta-ret, not org-ctrl-c-ret, correct? Even so, I can't reproduce your issue with Org mode version 9.2.3 (release_9.2.3-367-gd79e80) freshly pulled from the git repo. – NickD May 10 '19 at 16:45
  • It looks like that is the problem - when I type M + Ret the context menu shows that the Ret key will call org-ctrl-c-ret; when I use M-x and run org-meta-ret then it works as expected. – Jeremy May 10 '19 at 20:47
  • Not sure what context menu you are talking about, but what does C-h c M-RET say? And is this in GUI emacs or emacs in a terminal? – NickD May 11 '19 at 16:28
