For some time now I'm tracking my tasks and ToDos (privately and for work) with
Emacs org-mode( http://orgmode.org/ ) and I am very happy with it.
There is a large project in my life (my Ph. D. thesis), for sure written with LaTeX on MacOS X :-) , which creates a lot of todos related to my writing. In the past I have tried different approaches with limited success, to add notes and todos directly to my LaTeX source code and display them in the PDF for review and action. The problem was, that there was no external list where I could re-arrange, tag or prioritize those tasks and remarks.
Now, as I'm finally starting to like Emacs (which I never had used before org-mode), I wonder if I could use Emacs AucTEX for editing and compiling my large document and directly inserting notes in the source code, which I could keep track of with org-mode.
Does anyone do that or is there a tutorial to do so?
I assume that just inserting org-mode lines like
* TODO [#B] rewrite this section"would conflict with LaTeX code.
Maybe there is a way to create kind of a permanent anchor at the current position in the LaTeX code and create an org-mode ToDO in my org-files which contains a hyperlink that lets me jump later (and even if the .tex file has changed) directly from
org-modeto the place in the LaTeX source, where I want to edit something later?
- It would be great, if I could add a note which is shown in the LaTeX pdf directly and link the corresponding line/place in the .tex source with a TODO in an org-file
