Lists and Checkboxes

List and Checkboxes are useful for organizing and tracking tasks.

Using lists

- creates a list item in Evil insert mode

o on a list item creates a new list item below when in Evil normal mode. O creates a checkbox above.

M -> on a list item creates a sub-list and M <- promotes a list item

Using checkboxes

- [ ] creates a list item as a checkbox

o on a checkbox item creates a new checkbox item below when in Evil normal mode. O creates a checkbox above.

M -> on a list item creates a sub-list and M <- promotes a list item

, T c toggles the mark in the checkbox (unless the checkbox has children)

When a child checkbox is marked, the parent has a dash to show partial completion. When all child checkboxes are crossed, then the parent is automatically crossed.

Tracking checkbox completion

Add [/] to the end of a heading that contains checkboxes to track the number of completed checkboxes and the total number of checkboxes.

Totals will automatically update when the status of a checkbox updates.

C-c when the cursor is on one of the [x/x] header totals will update all the totals for all the org-mode buffer.
