Can I tell Org mode to don't change editing back and
forth, also don't collapse items in and out, i.e.
virtually text mode, only I still want the font lock
and to be able to use the mode to set keys, the
functions to compile into a PDF, and so forth.

TIA

I believe you can set your #+STARTUP on your file to "showall".

https://orgmode.org/manual/In_002dbuffer-Settings.html

This will make the whole file open. I don't know if you could disable
tab folding a drawer later though.

Here is part of an IRC conversation that perhaps
clarifies what I mean... (the last sentence should
not be seen as a threat BTW :))

    <rogim> incal: that "Outliner" feature (i.e.
            collpasing and replacing things) is more
            or less the core of org-mode. emacs being
            emacs I bet you can disable it. but it
            would be completely braindead. in the
            true sense of the word. you would
            lobotmoize emacs.
            
    <incal> well, one can easily think of outliner
            features for HTML, CSS, LaTeX, even
            source code for every programming
            language, and I never used it for
            anything else
            
    <incal> so I guess I have always been braindead :)
            
    <rogim> I get what you mean, I don't use code
            folding like this anywhere else.
            it's just annoying with code.
            but org-mode is really about organzing
            information in a tree and collapsing
            parts of it and maybe moving things
            around. so if you don't need it, org-mode
            might be the wrong tool there. then again
            emacs can be adapt for everyone ofc
            
    <incal> what I was looking for was a way to
            typeset that had a less involved syntax
            than LaTeX, to be able to create simple
            PDFs, somewhere between plain text and
            LaTeX. I asked on gmane.emacs.orgmode ,
            if they cannot solve it I'll just
            `require' org, apply the org-mode's
            font-lock to a text-mode buffer, and use
            `org-latex-export-to-pdf'

Can I prevent hyperlinks from folding back and forth?

I mean, with [[][]] ?

Hm, maybe this will just go on and on if there is no
option to do it for real. The font-lock idea was
perhaps not so bad...?

That's probably not something most Org users would do, but I think you'd
get close to what you want with:

    (add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'visible-mode)

HTH.

Best,
Gustavo.

Markdown, Asciidoc and Pandoc? There are many modern solutions to
exporting from text to pretty formats. Org just happens to have many
more features. If Org's core features (ie: outlining) are in your way,
perhaps one of those tools is more suitable?

Emacs has modes to fontify those formats too.

I did not test it to every detail, but the following two settings may
be a good starting point:

#+begin_src elisp
(setq org-startup-folded 'showeverything)
(setq org-link-descriptive nil)
#+end_src

Also have a look at all the ~org-toggle-*~ commands like
~org-toggle-link-display~ and ~org-toggle-pretty-entities~ (the source
of these commands should reveal the associated variable that can be
set globally to the desired start value).

Hi Emmanuel,

Nearly everything in org-mode is configurable, so I think what you want is
definitely doable.

In addition to using `visible-mode` as suggested by Gustavo (this is maybe
the easiest), you can also configure Org to show the emphasis markup
characters:

    (setq org-hide-emphasis-markers nil)

And to show the full markup of links:

    (setq org-link-descriptive nil)

Cf. the variable `org-link-descriptive' and its associated toggle
function `org-toggle-link-display' (also reachable via the menu
Org -> Links -> Descriptive ...)

There is an unproven conjecture by some mathematician from the
seventeenth century that Org contains everything. He wrote that
he had a proof, but that the margin of the book he just had at
hand was too narrow to write it down.

Therefore: buy only books with large margins, kids.

;-)

No problem, the old name is =org-descriptive-links= (this name has
been deprecated in Org 9.3, but it is still working in 9.4).

Thanks, I wonder tho if all this

  (setq org-descriptive-links      nil)
  (setq org-hide-emphasis-markers  nil)
  (setq org-startup-folded        'showeverything)

is implied, with `visual-mode'?

Beware: =visible-mode= not "visual"!

As far as I understand the internal of Org an Emacs, some of the
visual features of Org are implemented with overlays, some are
implemented with text properties. Disabling visible-mode just makes
invisible text visible - but I do not fully understand whether this
affects really all kinds of "invisibility" or just some.

So I for myself prefer to say Org explicitly what I want instead of
trying to take advantage of an indirect effect that may disturb Orgs
internal state (or not; I just do not understand enough of Org and
Emacs internals to really judge this).
