5 Editing

Editing in Todo mode means making structural or textual changes at one of the levels of organization (file, category, or item). Structural editing includes adding, relocating and removing units of information at a level; textual editing includes renaming files or categories and changing an item’s content or date/time stamp, or adding certain kinds of marks or tags to items. Todo mode provides commands, detailed in the following sections, which enable you to quickly and safely make changes to your todo lists, without having to worry about preserving the file format.

To save changes you make to the current todo file, type s (todo-save). Changes are also saved on quitting Todo mode with q.
