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