[Admin note: I’ve pulled some posts added to some old topics into a new discrete thread to allow the community to have better discussion of this interesting idea]
i’m excited to share that i finally took the plunge this weekend and started my first document. we have a problem at work due to new legislation and i need to work through the copy we use in-app and in support articles.
side question: is anyone aware of people using tinderbox to manage ui copy such as error messages, banners, dialogs, and so on? as a ux writer, we have an increasing need for some sort of ui copy textbase, and perhaps tinderbox would work. for example, i like the idea of creating an error message prototype formatted with red so they stand out in what is likely a ginormous map. (presumably i’d stick each type of ui copy in a container.)
it doesn’t seem a far leap from working out a problem with nomenclature to analysis. from fiction to nonfiction to grammars (latin and greek), the idea of prototypes and links that can be “coded” (?) as “disagree,” my text world is opening up in exciting ways! not yet sure how to reconcile this tool with a zettelkasten or omnioutliner, or the soon-to-be released nvultra, but how exciting to have so many powerful tool from which to choose!
apologies for hijacking a meetup thread with off-topic prather, but i really am excited. and perhaps it’s not drastically off topic to share the excitement in a thread setting up a meetup with others who share the same excitement for tinderbox!
