Running Doom Emacs v2.0.9 on Emacs 27.1.

I can mark several entries in the agenda buffer and work on all of them together.

Is there a way to keep marked entries highlighted? This would give more comfort while we operate on them.


Your question should be more accurate. You can compose a function to do what you want. For instance to highlight saturday and monday using the color pink (you can have a try in interactive mode ):

(defun my-highlight-we-agenda ()
" your function description "
(highlight-regexp "saturday\\|sunday" 'hi-pink))

Next you active this function in any org-agenda-list buffer

(add-hook 'org-agenda-finalize-hook #'my-highlight-we-agenda)

To compose a regexp just as you need, you can use re-builder in a org-agenda buffer

  • Thanks. But that was not what I meant. In agenda buffer, one can mark an entry using org-agenda-bulk-toggle. This puts a small icon in the leftmost column. Can we have the line highlighted instead? – deshmukh Jan 10 at 9:07
  • Could you post an example of your org-agenda buffer and what you want to be done ? – gigiair Jan 10 at 15:07
