I'm unsure how to use checkboxes in Emacs. I'm using Emacs 24.3.
The documentation suggests the use of
org-toggle-checkbox as "With a single prefix argument, add an empty checkbox..."
I've tried starting with an existing list (with org-mode as the major mode), as in:
* shopping list ** eggs ** bread ** Tesla Model S ** bacon
Whether I put point in "shopping list", or in "eggs", pressing
C-u C-c C-x C-b (which runs
org-toggle-checkbox) results in the error "No item in subtree" being printed to the minibuffer. This behavior happens without my init file (
emacs -Q), so it's purely an org-mode issue.
What's the right way to start using checkboxes?
