Hello all,

I'm new to org mode (the bundling of ditaa made me aware of its
existence!), and having recently converted a relatively large volume
of notes from freemind, I'm now giving org mode a serious test drive.

Hi Stathis,


I have three questions:

(1) Is there any way to make the column placement of org-ellipsis
consistent? It seems that the presence of tags in headings cause
org-ellipsis to be placed in the right-hand side which makes it easier
to miss when looking at an outline.

No, unfortunately not.

(2) Is there any way to make org-cycle skip the "show all" mode? That
would make it to just collapse/expand the children of the current

No, but pressing TAB one extra time is really very little effort.

(3) Are there any plans to implement persistent tree expansion? For
example, it could be that org mode would somehow remember which
headings were expanded when you were last using an org file. Or being
able to go back to the previous state after you've created a sparse
tree using C-c /.

This has come up before, but is very complex and, in my
opinion, not really worth it.

You can use the VISIBILITY property to set fixed startup
visibilities for individual trees.
