Completely hide the :PROPERTIES: drawer in org-mode
org mode expand all
Could someone please give me some assistance to completely hide the
:PROPERTIES: drawer, including the line that says
* TASKS (with deadines) ** Next Action [#A] Ask the geniuses how to do this. :lawlist: DEADLINE: <2013-07-04 Thu > :PROPERTIES: :ToodledoID: 330686790 :ToodledoFolder: TASKS :Hash: afa88f17317bbe2ce0ce661333cdcfb4 :END: This line is for notes, which appears underneath the properties drawer. * UNDATED (without deadlines) ** Someday [#A] Close but no cigar -- keep trying. :lawlist: :PROPERTIES: :ToodledoID: 330686680 :ToodledoFolder: TASKS :Hash: eb0b8d360b5b1453dd66ed0c5698e135 :END: This line is for notes, which appears underneath the properties drawer.
I didn't see this feature by Googling, so I'm guessing that some special lines of code will be needed to make this feature request a reality. [In other words, I don't think it is a Super User question because this will need to be invented with some special code.]
The following answer completely hides everything from
:END:. It can be tested by evaluating
(org-cycle-hide-drawers 'children), or
(org-cycle-hide-drawers 'all), or in conjunction with the other functions relating to cycling the outline views. The standard functions to unfold that are included within the
org-mode family all work -- e.g.,
(require 'org) (defun org-cycle-hide-drawers (state) "Re-hide all drawers after a visibility state change." (when (and (derived-mode-p 'org-mode) (not (memq state '(overview folded contents)))) (save-excursion (let* ((globalp (memq state '(contents all))) (beg (if globalp (point-min) (point))) (end (if globalp (point-max) (if (eq state 'children) (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point)) (org-end-of-subtree t))))) (goto-char beg) (while (re-search-forward org-drawer-regexp end t) (save-excursion (beginning-of-line 1) (when (looking-at org-drawer-regexp) (let* ((start (1- (match-beginning 0))) (limit (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))) (msg (format (concat "org-cycle-hide-drawers: " "`:END:`" " line missing at position %s") (1+ start)))) (if (re-search-forward "^[ \t]*:END:" limit t) (outline-flag-region start (point-at-eol) t) (user-error msg))))))))))
For anyone who interested in tab cycling between all of the various views (including revealing what is inside the
:PROPERTIES: drawer, there is an easy modification to
org-cycle-internal-local by adding an additional condition before
(t ;; Default action: hide the subtree. . . .
((eq org-cycle-subtree-status 'subtree) (org-show-subtree) (org-unlogged-message "ALL") (setq org-cycle-subtree-status 'all))

How to completely hide the properties drawer in org-mode! : emacs, Here's a better way to toggle the properties of the header you're currently in. (defun org-toggle-properties () ;; toggle visibility of properties in current header if it I don't use a current version of org-mode, but back in the day (a few years ago), I wrote up an answer describing how to completely hide the :PROPERTIES: drawer including the aforementioned line. Towards the end of the answer, I wrote-up a snippet that modifies the behavior of cycling so as to add an additional level of toggling visibility/hiding.
That's simply not possible right now, at least not without (a lot of?) extra coding...
Problem is: how would you unhide it? Would you see "..." alone?
In org mode, how can I hide body text but show drawer contents , You can add overlays with the invisible property to everything except headlines and drawers (see overlay properties section of the manual). org-mode - Org mode is for keeping notes, maintaining TODO lists, planning projects, and authoring documents with a fast and effective plain-text system. Implement `org-cycle-hide-property-drawers' · 1027e02569 - Gogs
This allows you to toggle the properties of the header you're currently in.
(defun org-toggle-properties () ;; toggle visibility of properties in current header if it exists (save-excursion (when (not (org-at-heading-p)) (org-previous-visible-heading 1)) (when (org-header-property-p) (let* ((a (re-search-forward "\n\\:" nil t))) (if (outline-invisible-p (point)) (outline-show-entry) (org-cycle-hide-drawers 'all))))))

Regards If necessary, the property drawer is created as well. C-u M-x org-insert-drawer. Insert a property drawer into the current entry. The drawer is inserted early in the entry, but after the lines with planning information like deadlines.

- Why not send that upstream by the way?
- @Michaël -- That is a good idea -- I just emailed a short description and link to whoever subscribes to the
- @Michaël -- FYI: The proposed feature has been rejected by the maintainer of the
org-modepackage and I do not have the inclination to try and convince him to add this feature because the answer above is sufficient to meet my present needs. ["Thank you for the suggestion. However, I think hiding completely stuff from the user is not great. How would you edit it, or even know there are properties there? You can write ":properties:" instead of ":PROPERTIES:", dim them with an appropriate face…"] I vaguely remember a similar response a few years ago, but could not find the old email.
- There must be a simple solution, like re-search-forward with a save excursion from top to bottom of the buffer for every line beginning with
:PROPERTIES:through to and including the word
:END:and hit the
code foldbutton, so that it folds up underneath the previous line. Then the
unfold everything buttonto display everything, and from there back to cycling.
- The icing on the cake would be an upside down triangle at the end of the first line to indicate a code fold. :)
- A full-fledged solution now exists -- :)
- @american-ninja-warrior -- sorry for the delay in responding. I see that at least one other person had the same inquiry as you (based upon the upvote to your question). The accepted answer in this thread contains a full-fledged solution as far as I am aware -- I have been using that solution since about the year 2013 to the present.
