2.2.3 Catching invisible edits

Sometimes you may inadvertently edit an invisible part of the buffer and be confused on what has been edited and how to undo the mistake. By default, Org prevents such edits for a limited set of user commands. Users can control which commands are affected by customizing org-fold-catch-invisible-edits-commands.

The strategy used to decide if a given edit is dangerous is controlled by org-fold-catch-invisible-edits. See the docstring of this option on the available strategies. Set the option to nil to disable catching invisible edits completely.
