Could the Notes have backs? This will allow the front "Synopsis" to be smaller for mapping and linking, whilst carrying more information/detail/draft on the back.

I realise this appears to duplicate to an extent the "Synopsis Cards" in Scrivener but the latter only takes graphics on the reverse side.

It may be asking for the Earth, but ... could the Scapple Notes have the option of being exported into Scrivener:

- Just the front note to Scrivener Synopsis card
- Just the back of the Note to Scrivener Document Notes OR to the Scrivener page
- The Note to the Scrivener Synopsis card AND the back of the Note to either Scrivener Document Notes or to the page.

Would a separate "details" panel for individual notes provide what is needed by the OP? I hesitate to re-use the word "notes", but some other apps provide a way of attaching expanded, descriptive text to the otherwise intended short notes (nodes) of a map. I might want to have a short-phrase note about a particular person or location, for instance, in the Scapple workspace, but also have attached and expanded descriptive narrative regarding that particular note, mostly so that I don't forget just what my short note was actually referring to....or (tongue firmly in cheek) capture snippets of my brilliant writings that happen to occur to me at that moment, or in the middle of the night.

Currently, I place my expanded thoughts well off to the side of my Scapple workspace as separate text, and link it to the particular note. As you can guess, this makes for some very cluttered workspace...especially when all connectors look the same. As a result, I use few of them, and often long for a context-sensitive panel that would display text that is intended to relate to a particular note.
