Hi, Carsten,

I just tried org-mode version 6.02b, which seems to have the fix included. Glad those "line noises" disappeared. However, there seems to be some new (compared with 6.02) problems now:

1. Before the fix (6.02), faces of headings in org files are preserved in the column view. In 6.02b, text in column view is all in the same face. Can we restore the 6.02 behavior? 2. Customization for org-column face does not work right. Even though I only customized the "background" property of org-column face and hence expect the font stays the same as my default font (a bold font), but the font changes to regular (no bold text). Funny thing is, the sample text showed in the face customization window is in the correct font, but the actual font in the org file (column view) is not. Also even after I forced the "Weight" to be "bold", that still did not work. My org-column face is as following:

        Family: unspecified
         Width: unspecified
        Height: unspecified
        Weight: unspecified
         Slant: unspecified
    Foreground: unspecified
    Background: gray80
     Underline: unspecified
      Overline: unspecified
Strike-through: unspecified
           Box: unspecified
       Inverse: unspecified
       Stipple: unspecified
Font or fontset: nil
       Inherit: unspecified

Thanks a lot if you can take a look of it.

In the column view, I often see some underlines and strike-through lines that show up kind of randomly. I have seen this for quite sometime, maybe since I began to use the column view 3 or 4 months ago. Are there any special meanings for those lines or they are just noise? I am now using Emacs 22.2 (on windows) and org-6.02. Thank you.

This happens because each column is an overlay over a one character in the line below, and it seems that the properties of the underlying faces are still coming through. Column one has the properties of character one in the line, column two that of character two, etc.

Fixed now, I think.

Why in the world would you be using a strike-through face? There is nothing more ugly in the world of typography than strike-through faces, and web sites that use it immediately get onto the black list of my parental control program :-)
