Hi again

so excited over this had to ask 2 more questions ;-)

1.can that function include/link to org-id  (so that it can keep the links even if the headers move around in/out of the files)
2.i saw there are 3 options to that helm function. can this be customized to add more commands (can really think of which ones know but could see potential in future :))

thx so much John as always you rock ;-)

(helm-org-agenda-files-headings) seems to do this already for all
headlines in your agenda files. the third action is to insert a link to
the selected headline.

You can use let to temporarily define the org-agenda-files list to what
you want, and just use the (helm-org-agenda-files-headings) command for
non-agenda files.


#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun insert-heading-link (dir)
  "select a headline from org-files in dir and insert a link to it."
  (interactive  (list (read-directory-name "Directory: ")))
  (let ((org-agenda-files (f-entries
                           (lambda (f)
                              (file-name-extension f)))

gives me a helm buffer to select headlines from org-files in the
directory I select and when I press f3 (for the third
action), it inserts a link to the selected headline. It does the file
finding recursively, so you might not want to run this on /  ;)

You could bind it to a key for easy use.
