Hi --

I have more information on this error. I think I've traced it down to whether the command is actually killing the current element in the first place.

I had a clipboard management function working in Quicksilver and got rid of that in order to test this better. I got an error on refiling, but it was a different error this time. One about the element being empty, IIRC.

Am I misunderstanding refile? Do I have to do more than have the cursor on the line to be moved?

No, this is exactly everything you need to do.

And is there a way I can further backtrace this so that it might be useful for troubleshooting by others? Or screencast the error so you can see I am not making this up? I am enamored of orgmode now, but I'm on the verge of abandoning it because I have a notes file from which I cannot conveniently refile tasks and it's becoming unmanageable.

I am a noob - drawn to the alien world of Emacs (from my familiar Mac environment) by OrgMode. I am uncertain enough that I don't rightly know if this is best described as an OrgMode error or an Emacs error. Most likely a human error, I guess.

I am using last night's Aquamacs build: GNU Emacs (i386-apple-darwin9.7.0, NS apple-appkit-949.46) of 2009-06-23 on BRAEBURN.PSY.CMU.EDU - Aquamacs Distribution 2.0dev. Org-mode 6.21b.

In OrgMode, I am trying to learn to refile tasks. I use C-c C-w on a TODO item in a notes file. It goes through the process of allowing me to select the destination for the item. But then it throws an error - "Kill is not a (set of) trees" etc - every time. Doesn't kill the TODO and obviously doesn't yank it to the new location.

Are you selecting a region before calling the command? That region might be not a valid tree.

I have done this with the point (that's the emacs word for cursor, right?) in a TODO item. I have done it with the entire item selected as a region.

I am happy to backtrace this or test in whatever way is needed. I knew I was getting into something complex here.
