Is it possible not to remove any blank lines in beorg? I would like to keep the formatting for readability.
Possibly - this is something I will need to review. What might be better is for users to override some simple formatting requirements in the init.org - for example how many blank lines after notes, before a headline, after a headline, etc. Then beorg could better keep things consistent when adding/removing items.
Good idea. By now I use beorg only with a dedicated org file because of the formatting, hope that you can put this idea into your wish list :)
Same issue here, after I modified some of my GTD items, some irrelevant parts of the the org file containing the items are also changed.
All I want is that, if I modified TODO item status only, only that *relevant* part will be changed, so that my original formatting will not be affected.
I will take a look to see if a new setting can be introduced to stop beorg messing with blank lines. For most users they would probably keep this on - but if you do you want to be in control of spacing, etc then I'll see if beorg can be made to leave that alone.
Thanks. Glad to hear it.
I would love to hear if the setting is implemented or not? Seems it cannot be found in beorg3 or it is somewhere hided? :)
I have made some small improvements on this over the past few releases but still some work to do.
another +1 in favor of not removing blank lines. This creates all kinds of (apparently unnecessary?) churn for a workflow that syncs between my working org mode directory and iCloud.
Having a setting that only affects entries added in beorg, but not the entire file, sounds great to me.
Another +1 for keeping blank lines
+1 Still very much waiting for this feature. It's holding me back from using the app.
Something you could discuss is the expectations that BeOrg has in the format of the Org files (if any).
