OK, so if you call org-cycle "in the vicinity" of a word that starts
with the string 'file', then it eats up 'file' and prompts for link
insertion. This is true in buffers that are not in org-mode or
orgstruct*-mode. (I call org-cycle the whole time in order to use
outline-minor-mode, but o-m-m doesn't have to be turned on to cause

Try putting the following fragment into python-mode, and getting rid of the asterisks. Then org-cycle issued with point at any of the asterisked
locations eats the string 'file' and prompts for a link.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
def f(filepath):
*def g(arg):
return arg
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This is with latest git.

Tried the test with following text with numbers removed.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
def f(filepath):
5def g(arg):
return arg
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

With buffer in python mode, I executed org-cycle at the positions marked with
numbers and got the results below:

at 1,2,3: nothing happens
at 4: inserts a tab (four spaces in my case)
at 5: eats the line with "return arg" (also can not revert this change
with undo.)

Hi Manish,

the line is not eaten, it is hidden by outline. However, since you have not turned on outline-minor-mode, you do not see the ellipsis.

A TAB is inserted because in places where org-cycle cannot do anything, it emulates TAB.

I guess I should refactor org-cycle into a function that does only cycling, and one that does all the rest...

The buffer "looks" as if it ends at "def g(arg):" line but when I tried to paste the resultant buffer with "return arg" removed, I got the following
strange result.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
def f(filepath):

def g(arg):
  return arg
  return arg

  return arg

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I tried it several times, also tried saving the buffer and opening it in that
other editor as well.

Tested with git commit 5834ad01b617430c0207627ad425758bcf9b921a of
