It would be magnificent if one could connect notes not just to other notes, but also to elements (words, sentences etc.) within other notes. This would make it possible (for instance) to provide a piece of poetry with an ample commentary consisting of notes neatly grouped around it.

Sorry, that's definitely outside of the scope of Scapple, and would be very difficult to achieve from a technical standpoint in the sort of software it is, as it would require grabbing layout rectangles from multiple notes.

Thanks for the suggestion, though!

All the best,
Keith
