The Apple Merge All Windows works in Scapple now (as it does in S3). It's not multiple maps in one file, but easy tab-switching between separate maps.

Really? In El Capitan? Scapple 1.3? I'm not seeing it.

I'm using High Sierra, but I suspect it works in Sierra. I believe the OS-level tabs stuff started with Sierra; can't remember.

1) Fix upside down/inside out Scrivener display bug in MacOS version (workaround by importing as PNG is a PITA)
2) Allow drill-down into other Scapple files. Example: File one displays character relationships. Click/Double-Click on a character and see character arc flow in file two.
3) All user to edit file from within Scrivener pane

Hi, I love working with Scapple!
Is it possible to use two arrows between two notes, so I can connect in one way with a labeled arrow and with an other line with a different in the other way?

Second, and this is a lot more trouble, make "stacking" a persistent characteristic. This could mean cells in a stack could be dragged to another position in the stack and the stack would "re-stack" in the new order. Also, when a stack is surrounded by a magnetic shape, when the stack is added to, the shape should expand to contain the new element. I use stacking a lot because it is the only way to create indented content. For me, a stack is one note in multiple pieces and should be kept intact.


Reviving this sentiment a few years down the track. This (especially the dragging order bit) would make Scapple near perfect for me. I also use stacks a lot, and reordering can be pretty fiddly. Dragging would be fantastic.

has anyone else here suggested / requested a 'typewriter mode' for scapple? what i have in mind is very simple - an option to keep focused on the current box and move it automatically to the centre of the screen.

i can see that it wouldn't suit everyone, so if it was turn on-and-offable i think it might speed up text entry.

Just bought Scapple and I like it very much. I used to work with VUE (http://vue.tufts.edu/) but Scapple is much neater and more comfortable. One feature that I miss though, is the ability to get an overview of the occurrence of a certain term across the map. So if I search "and" I would like all "ands" to be highlighted. Right now, search seems to highlight one occurrence of a term at the time?
