Hello orgers,

I'm wondering how to do a simple copy/paste of a todo list from
org-mode. For instance, when I'm producing the list of all my TODOs
with C-c a t, and then filtering it using a given tag, how can I
simply copy and paste the resulting TODO list from the "Org Agenda"
buffer into another one (e.g. scratch) ? I tried to simply select and
copy, but then yanking into another buffer results in an un-filtered
list of many TODOs (which is nearly the same as the first one
constructed from C-c a t, but excludes all TODOs that appear before
the first entry retained by the filter). I also tried with
org-copy-visible, but still no success.

Anybody could explain me how to do this simple task ?

C-x C-w (bound to org-agenda-write).


Thanks for your response Nick, with the new org 8.3.3,
org-agenda-write does nearly the what I want: it selects the right
filtered list of TODOs. However, it exports all TODO's subtrees, while
I want to copy only the list of TODOs as it appears in the agenda
view. Any other ideas ?

C-h f org-agenda-write RET says:

| If the extension is .org, collect all subtrees
| corresponding to the agenda entries and add them in an .org file.

so IIUC, all you have to do is use a file name that does not have
a .org extension.


As simple as that ;) Thank you.
