Re: [O] Org indent mode

Yes.  We are clearly talking past each other.  You need to set the "org-hide" text style (or "face") so that it is the same color as your background.  Then the stars will appear invisible.

This is explained in the section of the docs I linked to: "The leading stars are not truly replaced by whitespace, they are only fontified with the face org-hide that uses the background color as font color. If you are not using either white or black background, you may have to customize this face to get the wanted effect."

Here's one way you might do that.  Do M-x apropos and then search for org-hide.  Click "org-hide" and then click "customize this face".  Then set the foreground color to be the same as your background color.

Hope that helps.

I'm not sure how to customize this. I have tried different variations of
#+STARTUP: hidestars
#+STARTUP: odd #+STARTUP: oddeven

but they don't seem to be working. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

But did you try customizing the org-hide face?

I've added (setq org-hide-leading-stars t) but still getting the leading stars. Thanks.

I'm trying to setup Org indent mode for cleaner view but the preceding starts show up dimmed in grey color. How do I make them totally invisible?

I've put this at the top of the .emacs:

(setq org-startup-indented t)
(setq org-indent-mode t)

and running emacs version 24.3.1 and org version 8.2.5 from the command-line.
