I recently noticed that using SPACE or TAB in the agenda displays the

fold the org file with S-TAB to Overview or Contents display and then switch to the agenda and SPACE or TAB on a folded task it unfolds the
entire thing including the drawers.

Expanding the file to SHOW ALL and then using follow mode from the
agenda shows me the view I'm really looking for so that's what I'm doing
as a workaround right now.

While doing my weekly review of tasks I use follow mode to view task
detail and the expanded :LOGBOOK: and :PROPERTIES: drawers hide detail scrolled off the bottom of the window. My :LOGBOOK: drawer for repeated tasks tends to be l-o-n-g and shoves detail way down the file (such as
my weekly review checklist :) ).

Is it possible to control expansion of the drawers when displaying a
task from the agenda? The view I'm looking for is the same as SHOW ALL from S-TAB. It seems that if the task is expanded from the agenda it
expands everything including the drawers.

This seems to have been a confused Emacs session on my part.  After
restarting it no longer behaves as described above (it doesn't expand
tasks past the headline by default -- which is the old behaviour I

My Emacs was definitely behaving weird - C-x o would cycle from the
agenda, to the org file, to the message window, then back to the agenda with 2 windows open (and the message buffer). After restarting emacs it
just cycles between the agenda and the org file (as expected).

Resurrecting an old thread:

Bernt: I'm experiencing the issue you describe above (i.e., drawers
revealed when following a headline from the agenda) after restarting
emacs. I have not been able to solve the problem.

I was wondering if you had customized the variables org-show-entry- below
and org-show-hierarchy-above? I have not customized these variables,
which makes it even more unusual that the drawers are revealed when
following a headline from the agenda, since the default for
org-show-entry-below is nil.

The agenda often exposes the cause for the appearance in
the agenda (exception: properties), so if this is a
scheduled item, the scheduled timestamp is in the entry
text below the headline, which is why the content of the
entry is shown.
