As I work on a large file, I often feel the need to go to a different part of the document, do something, and come back to the current map. How do people do this?
use case 1
My need can be described as “bookmarked locations”: maybe there are five containers of importance, and I want to go there.
One solution is to keep tabs open for different locations. This will not scale if there are many locations (consider, for example, that I have a file with notes from a dozen books from a single author, and a separate container for each).
One partial solution is to use Applescript and use “set selected note”, but that does not navigate to the corresponding map, just to the text component of the note.
use case 2
I have a file in which I record things I am doing. Everything has two dimensions: there is a note for each day, and elsewhere, there are projects on which I am working. Again I need to jump back and forth. Note that there is content uniquely present in one location or the other — the date view contains only a high-level description of what I did, with gory details in the project area, but it may have notes about prioritization and non-project stuff that does not live elsewhere— so I can’t automate to generate a day view.
Do others feel a need for such navigation? What is your use case? How have you tackled it?
