Formatting requirements

Something you could discuss is the expectations that BeOrg has in the format of the Org files (if any).

  • Blank lines -- I put in blank lines for readability.  Will BeOrg remove them and where?  Be precise.
  • Auto-fill -- Should we fill paragraphs or let it wrap at the end of a line?  I'm an old Emacs user, so I tend to turn on auto-fill.
  • CRLF vs NL -- How does BeOrg hand EOL?  If I mostly edit on a PC (CRLF), will that cause problems with BeOrg?
  • How is BeOrg on other character sets?
  • Anything else?


There is a new setting to add blank lines between headers. Add...


(set! beorg-add-newline-between-headlines #t)


...to your init.org. Possibly still not quite what some of you are looking for so hope to continue to make improvements here.

Thanks Matthew! Could you guide me to where init.org should be stored? Is it in the root org folder? I added it and the setting you posted, but the app doesn't seem to respect spacing still. Anything I'm missing?

Oh! That's a "set!, not "setl" !


I'd been using init to set  the tag column as Emacs and Beorg disagree, but I recently noticed it wasn't working and reset it in Emacs.
