The older settings remained at the old column setting until I restarted.
Since I have more than 100 headings in some org files, I wanted to
adjust them all (not just the new ones). I have sometimes used C-x C-e,
but I find that often I just restart. But yes, I agree: I would
certainly know more if I read more. I occasionally do look through the
manual, and I have even spent time with the Lisp intro; but unless one
uses these functions one a regular basis, it can be tough to remember
the details.
