When reviewing the captured data, you may want to refile or to copy some of the entries into a different list, for example into a project. Cutting, finding the right location, and then pasting the note is cumbersome. To simplify this process, you can use the following special command:
Copying works like refiling, except that the original note is not deleted.
Refile the entry or region at point. This command offers
possible locations for refiling the entry and lets you select one
with completion. The item (or all items in the region) is filed
below the target heading as a subitem. Depending on
org-reverse-note-order, it is either the first or last subitem.
By default, all level 1 headlines in the current buffer are
considered to be targets, but you can have more complex
definitions across a number of files. See the variable
org-refile-targets for details. If you would like to select
a location via a file-path-like completion along the outline
path, see the variables
org-outline-path-complete-in-steps. If you would like to be
able to create new nodes as new parents for refiling on the fly,
check the variable
When the variable
org-log-refile87 is set, a timestamp or
a note is recorded whenever an entry is refiled.
Use the refile interface to jump to a heading.
Jump to the location where
org-refile last moved a tree to.
Refile as the child of the item currently being clocked.
Refile and keep the entry in place. Also see
to make this the default behavior, and beware that this may
result in duplicated ‘ID’ properties.
Clear the target cache. Caching of refile targets can be turned
on by setting
org-refile-use-cache. To make the command see
new possible targets, you have to clear the cache with this
Note the corresponding ‘STARTUP’ options ‘logrefile’, ‘lognoterefile’, and ‘nologrefile’.
