How does `outline-mode' feel? I use it for keeping various notes.
Does it have something like an index of notes to quickly know
where to retrieve a note/information ? This is a major
requirement for me. In records-mode, pressing C-c C-j, I have an
index buffer which shows a list of keywords and the respective
notes entries (There is something close to this in notes-mode).
The big no-no about records-mode and notes-mode currently is that
they seem "dead" and unmaintained.
As Bastien said, maybe I am misusing Org. Maybe Org is really
what I want but concentrating only on the note taking aspect and
not using planning/todo handling.
As far as I remember, org-mode and remember has turned out very
good combination by the past _but_, I always feel lost when it
comes to « searching » informations -ie. I do not like the search
What I need, if I go back to Org, is a setup like this:
#1. One note page per day classified ala notes-mode (and I also
want to have the possibility to have notes not related to dates
-ie. independant notes (by, say, subject)
#2. An index of all my note entries (with quick search on
keywords, tags, etc.)
#3. I want to be able to narrow on a note entry (this is easy in
every mode I have tried)
#4. navigation facilities to previous/next day (as is done by
records-mode and notes-mode). This is an important point for
my job position.
Free form notes taking is, off course, a _must have_ for me.
