Dear List,

from time to time I involuntarily archive parts of my thesis when I want to 
save (it happens
when I mess up the saving keys). Since I recognized this a couple of days or 
even weeks later
this makes recovering complicated.

Therefore I would love to have the possibility to be asked whether I really 
want to do that. I
used org-archive-subtree-default-with-confirmation but I did not get what the 
meaning of that
one is. When I use that command I am sure that I want to archive and as far as 
I see it does not
change the default behavior.

Does anybody have an idea how to achieve what I want?
Thanks in advance,


Hi Markus,


        M-x disable-command

could help.

It will ask you for the command you would like to disable (in your case probably "org-archive-subtree")
and modify your .emacs accordingly.

You could reach the same effect by putting:

        (put 'org-archive-subtree 'disabled t)

in your initialization-file (if it is not .emacs).

I think I will try this too, because I remember some occasions,
that I have used it accidentially like you ...

with kind regards, Marc
