Hello Alan,

I think you overlooked one aspect of org-fstree.
If you place a link to a file in the org file (outside the region
between BEGIN_FSTREE and END_FSTREE), e.g:

* Some note [[file:foobar][foobar]]      :someTag:

then this heading will show up behind the file in the fstree as a link

#+BEGIN_FSTREE: some_path

** [ ] foobar { [[* Some note][Some note]] }     :someTag:


I see that it could in some cases be comfortable to add notes directly
at the file's entry and make them persistent on update. I might write a function that automatically inserts a heading for the currently selected
file outside the fstree block, if time allows.

I'm looking for a better way to display those links and possibly also
the content of the headings and am happy to receive new ideas. I tried the
column view, but properties that contain links are displayed as text.

But you can nonetheless open them with C-c C-o when on the right field.

Together with the ability to limit the recursions, this is potentially
useful.  Thank you.

A longstanding item on my wishlist has been a Linux implementation of
an old MSDOG workalike, 4DOS with the 4dos shell.  That shell worked
alot like "dir" but it kept a field for comments.  So, with those
useless msdog 8+3 filenames, one could keep a note, and keep track of
...  Maybe you can get it.

DIred is pretty good, but I haven't found anything yet to do what I
would like. I just tried typing notes into the org-fstree buffer of a
directory listing.  It was pretty nice, not what I want exactly, but
it could be useful in some cases.

Except for at least one thing: refreshing the directory deleted my
notes.  For example:

*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-help][org-help]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/ARCHIVE][ARCHIVE]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/orgcard][orgcard]]     Hmmm..?????
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/Journal][Journal]]     ???
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/plotting][plotting]]    my experiments
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/LaTeX][LaTeX]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/Classes][Classes]] Working directory maybe
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/MEMO][MEMO]]        location of memo
composition bits
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/data][data]]        attachments
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/auto][auto]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-extra][org-extra]]   better to keep
the extra bits here for portability?
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-plot][org-plot]]    gnuplot and R
plotting, I think

Now when I refresh:
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/Classes][Classes]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/MEMO][MEMO]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/data][data]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/auto][auto]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-extra][org-extra]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-plot][org-plot]]

Do you suppose this could be solved easily?

Thanks again,

Alan Davis
