Dear all 

Is it anyhow possible to use a .tex file as an org-agenda-file? 

This might seem a silly question. The reason is that I stick to auctex
for writing my documents. But it would be nice to be able to insert a
todo item directly at an appropriate place within a tex-file and have it
integrated in org-agenda-view. 

Maybe this can be done by a workaround using ipa.el (in-place
annotations) and setting an orgmode file as ipa-file? Any experiences? 

Thanks

Sven

One approach could be to use babel.  That is, have an org file in which
all your latex sits as code segments.  You can then edit each individual
code segment (C-c ') using auctex but keep org as an outliner and task
manager.  You do lose some capabilities of auctex, specifically to do
with cross-referencing support, I would imagine.  But you gain all the
power of org and continue to be able to use auctex's keybindings when
desired.

I've attached a simple example.  Tangling the file (C-c C-v t) will
create l.tex which you can then process as desired.

Thanks for reminding me of this.  I had meant to try it out and forgot!
(forgot to create an org todo item... have done so now ;-)

HTH,

It might be possible to put an ID marker in the document.  A command
then would take you to a headline in a .org file.  That headline can
then have all Org features.

1:1 mapping.

Another command would take you back to that position in the document.

Hello Samuel and Eric

Thank you for your suggestions. I have tried In-Place Annotations in the
meantime. However, that doesn't work because every line of annotation
begins with a hard-coded ":", which breaks the orgmode markup. [Hm, now,
I'm just thinking about the possibility to simply replace that by "* "
in the el.] Switching to babel might be a solution. I will try it. At
the moment I'm using org-annotate-file with similar results as Samuel's
suggestion would yield. Org-annotate-file didn't work for me in the
past, because it didn't recognize the exact line in the associated
document (org-annotate-file-add-search) for any reason. But now it
works. Anyway, this package is not able to display an annotation within
the original file (what In-Place Annotations can do).

Thanks,

Sven
