Hi Keith,

one thing I'd like to suggest is text shortening for notes, a bit like Scriveners' Synopsis, but perhaps only when I try to resize a note with lots of text in it. Then there would be text lengthening - just throw in a couple of words and upon enlarging a note you get a whole paragraph written. That would be wonderful....

Hi zikade,

This is a bit out of Scapple's remit, I'm afraid, as the whole point is that you write notes anywhere and see all of the notes. Unlike in Scrivener, there would be no other way of seeing them unless you edited them and scrolled through them, otherwise.

All the best,
Keith

Maybe if I do a bit more pleading? Please?
Or having sort of a backside to a note?
I got that "seeing all notes at once"-paradigm, but still I'd love to have the opportunity to hide some more text (picture, whatever) - probably a lengthy explanation why I actually wrote that note earlier. Actually, 'love' is way too weak - I'd be ecstatic.

Oh, and I really like it right now, so it's just nagging a bit ;)
