Binder Folder Reactions

I have looked in Help and the Forum and not found an answer. I would like the Binder folders to stay closed when I drag a document onto them. Presently, the Binder folder pops open. This repositions the other items to a an out-of-sight, but scroll able location. Scrolling takes time and focus away f...

LISTS STACKS BINS

LISTS STACKS BINS Each of these concepts is used in the early stages of writing. Lists: a number of connected items or names written or printed consecutively, typically one below the other Stacks: a pile of objects, typically one that is neatly arranged BIN: a receptacle for storing a specified sub...

Scapple is not OmniGraffle Lite

I've been reading some of the posts for feature requests and my gut reaction is to vociferously reject most of them. There ** ALREADY EXISTS ** software products that pretty up mental maps and diagrams. Don't do this to Scapple. It fills a niche that no other product does. It is a tool to rapidly co...

Re: names for shapes

+1
I think exporting OPML and naming shapes will be a very useful aspect to my workflow. Scapple is not a destination, Scrivener, OmniOutliner Pro, and Keynote are also part of my processes.

Re: Import RTF document items feature request

Good point about destination of the imported item. Yet, if I import from a RTF/text file, more than likely, I will have many, many items that I want to import so location destination will be very approximate, no matter whether I drag n drop or Open Import. The import of many many items will cover a ...

Sorting Stack Text Items - Needed Feature

Stacks do sort based upon some criteria (manual page 28-30): 1-length of text item (this doesn't seem really useful. Let me know if you see a use) 2-distance from stack when inserting text items (very novel) 3-layers [Section 4.2.11] 4-connections impact export order, but not during editing [4.2] 5-...

Re: Container Issue

Got that magnetic thing. So the shapes, now, do keep the text items. Seems like a container to me....

I was using the PDF page numbers, not the printed page numbers in the manual. My bad.

Thanks for the response.

Import RTF document items feature request

Currently Scapple allows import of text items via multiple documents. This is really useful. However, it uses drag n drop (don't change that at all) and many times the source document is deeply nested in other folder locations. It would be useful if Scapple would naturally "OPEN" those sam...

Hidden Text Container Feature Request

If I can get containers to work as described in the manual that will be half way to my goal. However, in a complex Scapple document one needs to clean up more. What about a type of container that provides hidden storage of text items until double clicked to open. It would provide a needed sorting/ca...

Container Issue

I know this is a small issue, because others are using containers. I have not been involved in any use of Scapple before. So new user of this product. I cannot get my text items to become contained or attached to a background shape. I'm reading the manual p29-30. It doesn't work for me. What is the ...

Re: Corkboard Index Card Stacking

Let me try this from another direction. BTW, I am NOW a registered user of Scrivener! Yeah! If I have 254 text files in the binder all under the Research folder. I create three folders to 'file' the 254 text files. Now, I would like to drag each file into its appropriate 'filing folder.' Except I ca...

Re: Corkboard Index Card Stacking

It seems like over thinking a simple concept (yes the programming might be complex). This is similar to drill down concept on information technology dashboards. The index cards 'accumulate' other cards as the user drags and drops them. Perhaps the stack top card should always be a binder folder ?? T...

Re: Corkboard Index Card Stacking

Yes definitely "visual stacking". That is the point to see what the organization becomes. It is not enough to watch a second pane to see what the hierarchal organization becomes.

Corkboard Index Card Stacking

As a pre-sales user (very much intrigued), I notice a seemingly blind spot in the index cards aspect of Scrivener. Why can't cards be stacked to reflect physical practice. I'm not concerned that cards can be moved to specific locations, although that would be helpful. It seems essential that many ca...
