Apologies for the noise, but I haven't seen a response to this feature request / query, and org-mode continues to bug me because of this :-)

Any responses, suggestions (and especially implemenations ;-) ) welcome.

Thanks again,

Hi all,

I make quite extensive use of org's sequences, and make use of the org-log-done features to prompt for a note when a task is closed.

My problem is that when reorganising I often push a sequence on to a done state instead of switching sequences, i.e. I press S-<Right> instead of C-S-<Right>. When this happens a note window is popped up, where by I am forced to press C-c C-k to close the note window, then I need to press C-_ to undo the original change.

One thing I have noticed is that my reflex action upon seeing the Note and realising that's not what I want, is to press undo at that point. Rather than enter the mildly frustrating workflow above, would it be possible to have undo close the note, and then revert the headline into it's previous state, by calling undo again in the original buffer?

Obviously you'd only want this if the Org Note buffer didn't contain any changes. If it did, the stock undo behaviour makes sense, except when you've made some changes and spent all your undo's, pressing undo again might want to ask whether you want to close the note and revert the state change in the previous buffer.

Does this make sense?
