1 Usage

1.1 boxy-headings

To view all headings in an org-mode file as a boxy diagram, use the interactive function boxy-headings

Suggested keybinding:

(define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c r o") 'boxy-headings)

To modify the relationship between a headline and its parent, add the property REL to the child headline. Valid values are:

  • on-top
  • in-front
  • behind
  • above
  • below
  • right
  • left

The tooltip for each headline shows the values that would be displayed if the org file was in org columns view.
