Due to my Ubuntu 21.04 Wayland being flaky (I suspect), I can't always get the org menu to drop down properly, and I like to do a "Refresh setup current buffer" often. How could I do this with a key chord? Help/Apropos doesn't reveal any likely candidates.

  • C-c C-c on any keyword line #+....: will do that.

  • Is the menu broken-ness like this?

You could restart org-mode with M-x org-mode-restart and bind it to a key.

  • Yes, however M-x org-mode-restart is like C-c C-c on every single #+... line. It's handy when you have several #+... lines in your document since you don't have to find the specific line causing the problem, if a #+.. is the problem at all, which might not be the case.

  • You can do C-c C-c on any keyword line, not just the one that caused a problem. You can even add one #+FOO: bar right where you are, do C-c C-c and delete it afterwards.

    No, no, no: you only do it ONCE on ANY keyword line: it runs org-mode-restart just as if you had done M-x org-mode-restart or whether you bind org-mode-restart to some (other) key and use that. The point is that I don't have to remember yet another obscure used-defined key binding: I (almost) always have a keyword line that I can use C-c C-c on (and I can do M-x org-mode-restart on those rare occasions that there isn't one (or I can add one as pointed out before).

    Thanks for the clarification NickD, you're absolutely right. I erroneously thought C-c C-c just reloads the option of the #+ line you're on, but that is not the case. Thanks for your comments, I learned something new again! :)
