I recently upgraded to Org-mode version 9.2.4 from 9.1.9 and when I insert a capture template at point in an org-file using
C-0 C-c c or
C-0 M-x org-capture, it appears that properties
:empty-lines-before are not respected. In all instances, regardless of these values, the heading is moved to the lowest possible line before the next heading. Has anyone else experienced this? I reviewed the Org-mode 9.2 Changes and nothing obvious popped out. Is there a variable I'm missing? Is there anything in that changed in org-capture that would cause this? Can anyone replicated this?
I tried the following capture-template on both versions:
(setq org-capture-templates '(("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline "~/org/gtd.org" "Tasks") "* TODO %?\n %i\n %a" :empty-lines 2) ("j" "Journal" entry (file+datetree "~/org/journal.org") "* %?\nEntered on %U\n %i\n %a")))
And received the following:
* Version 9.1.9 ** First Heading ** TODO New Capture at Point ** Second Heading * Version 9.2.4 ** First Heading ** TODO New Capture at Point ** Second Heading
If it's not clear, the
New Capture at Point template removes all spaces between itself and the Second Heading. I also posted this question on Reddit but didn't receive any responses.
