in org-mode I have adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode on. The indentation though has a inconsistent behavior. I have already tried to toggle visual-line-mode and word wrap but the sometimes correct and sometimes wrong indentation does not change.

Inconsistent Indentation

adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode is a variable defined in ‘adaptive-wrap.el’.
Its value is t
Local in buffer Bibliothek.org; global value is nil

  Automatically becomes buffer-local when set.

Non-nil if Adaptive-Wrap-Prefix mode is enabled.
Use the command ‘adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode’ to change this variable.


and here the active modes

  1. How can I change my settings so that words are always truncated and indented correctly.
  2. What is the cause of this problem?
  • I'm experiencing a similar problem -- did you ever find a fix? Aug 26 '21 at 15:48
  • No sorry still nothing found. I added (setq org-adapt-indentation nil) to my init.el file so that every line starts a column 0 independent of the headline level (probably just like in markdown documents)
