I currently encrypt a lot of my org files with gpg symmetric encryption using
. I open the file as if it were a normal file and emacs asks me the password. With a mode line at the start of the file org mode comes up fine.
I think it would be useful to be able to encrypt individual sections of an org file, but I wonder how easily I would be able to unencrypt those sections if org-mode weren't available. Right now I can easily unencrypt the org files just using gpg, but if only a section is encrypted, am I going to have to do some hacking to get that section unencrypted without org-mode?
