I'm trying org-index, and I let the assistant build the table for me. At
the end of the set, this error occurred:
| Saved org-index-id '50E94CE9-06B3-452E-96B6-FA47AA08B9D6' to
| let: No catch for tag: created-new-index, nil
Is this problematic?
Here are a few notes I'm taking as I'm playing with it.
First, the table seems to be different from the one on worg. Here are
the columns I have:
| | | | | | comment |
| ref | link | created | count;s | last-accessed | ;c |
| | <4> | | | | |
I guess "comment" includes Type, description, and Keywords? Or can I
extend this table as I see fit?
Second, I don't see how to update a link in a table so that it points
somewhere else. Should I just copy the "Property" drawer to the new place?
Also, I noticed it's impossible to create a link to a file. If a file
does not have any org entry, then org-index link will fail with "Before
first headline at position 35591 in buffer ...". I can go around this by
creating an headline, but then I cannot use saveplace or something like
that to put me in the same place in the file (typically at the very end
of a long data table, to input more data).
Finally, what is the workflow to create a new reference? The way I do it
is "link" from the place to link, then call "+fill" in the table. Is
there a simpler way (that would do both in one stroke)?
