I would like to keep my reading annotations together with the literal text they quote. This is a fairly common use case, so I wonder what is the preferred way to go: composites or footnotes.
As far as I can tell, both composites and footnotes are treated as separate notes in Outline view. This is kind of unfortunate because moving the related notes together will involve considerable attention.
Composites’ have the important advantadge of showing the text of several notes together in Outline and Map views. Surprisingly, their behaviour seems a bit inconsistent: they don’t show at all in the Attribute browser view, so using composites heavily may render unusable this otherwise useful view. In search results, composites’ text doesn’t appear toghether at first; only when clicking on the note itself; if using them heavily, this would mean clicking on each search result.
Double linked footnotes within the text can be accessed in all views, but they seem to be more practical just for one-to-one note relation.
This is an essential part of my use of TB, so I better get it right from start. Any advise from seasoned users?
