I have recently started using
org mode in emacs, but my macro bound in my initialisation file to
C-x C-k T no longer works because this combination is used by
outline mode which underpins
org mode. I went by "Learning Gnu Emacs" by Debra Cameron et al. pub by O'Reilly, which states on page 160 that the sequences
C-x C-k with 0-9 and A-Z are reserved for user macro bindings. This itself is contradicted, I have just noticed, on page 193, where, in
C-c C-k is bound to
Show -> Show branches.
So, please, are there any key sequences that are available still, and will be in all circumstances?
I have left out the detail of my macro because it is irrelevant to this question.
I have left the original question as it is to explain my mistake. Thanks to @Gilles I realise that I made a silly mistake in confusing
C-x. The problem manifested itself in that using
.org mode seemed to redefine my key bindings. This I have now resolved by using
C-x <letter> instead of
C-c <letter>. Macros bound to these still work in
As to the question of what key sequence bindings are available, see: http://ergoemacs.org/emacs/emacs_set_keys_for_major_mode.html. This is part of an excellent and comprehensive set of articles on emacs by "Xah", available at: http://ergoemacs.org/emacs/emacs.html, and well worth the $15 he asks for them.
This is almost an answer rather than an extension to my question. I have put it here to retain my acceptance of @Gilles earlier answer, and as it is too long for a comment
