I have run into couple of issues with file+function templates. Let me

I have the following entry in org-capture-templates

 ("b" "Bookmarks" entry
  (file+function "~/bookmark.org" point)
  "** %c\n   %i \n   %?"))

The intention is to add a bookmark entry at the cursor position. This
entry gets triggered by an org-protocol://capture://b/... entry in the

With the above setup I notice the following.

1. Entry doesn't get added at the cursor position.

   For example, create an empty bookmark.org like this.

   * Heading1

   and position cursor at the end of the heading line.

   Trigger a bookmark entry. Notice that the entry gets added *before*
   the heading line.

2. Entry gets added with single '*' as opposed to '**' (Latter one was
    what was advised)

IMHO, org-mode shouldn't override my advise when creating such
file+function entries.

To elaborate further,

When I am researching a topic, I create a new headline in the
bookmark.org and all subsequent bookmarks gets added to the cursor
position. When I move on to another topic, I create another heading and
position my cursor underneath it and all future bookmarks go under the
new topic.

I wonder whether this - "create entry at the target file at the current
cursor location" - is a common workflow for others. If yes, may be
having an escape sequence for this would be a good idea.
