Aloha Séb and Jörg,

Thanks for these suggestions. I was hoping for something a bit more fine-grained, so that only the settings that were changed in the file were reset, and the values they were reset to were the ones they had, rather than the ones in .emacs. It appears there is no standard way to do this, which helps me on my way.

Aloha all,

This might be a naive query, but I'm wondering if there is some standard way to put the emacs configuration back to a previous state outside of
the customization interface?

I'm finding that I frequently work with Org-mode files that need
different configurations. I typically have a #+begin_src emacs-lisp
block in these files that I can execute with C-c C-c, so that emacs
behaves the way the file requires for the task at hand. When I'm done, though, and jump onto the next task, which might depend on my standard configuration to work correctly, I sometimes find that the changes I've made break things. At this point, I typically save, quit emacs and start

What I'd like to do is be able to have, in each file that contains an
emacs-lisp source block that changes the configuration, a corresponding
source code block that puts things back the way they were before the
block was executed.

Perhaps there is an easy way to do this?

All the best,
