I’m evaluating Tinderbox to solve a problem that I haven’t been enjoying solving in TheBrain. To whit creating a deck of cards based on The 36 Stratagems.
Each of my cards describes a stratagem with an image and different blocks of text. For each card, so far,I have:
- summary of action
- list of components
- list of forces
- list of questions
The output product should be a CSV file that I will use with InDesign DataMerge to produce the cards for printing.
What I am not clear about is the best way to represent the different chunks of information related to each of the cards.
I had assumed I could attach multiple texts to each note that I could give a name but it looks like string attributes are more intended for “short” text.
Then again, perhaps the right way is to structure this as some kind of “outline of notes” where I have a note for a Card and then connected notes for forces, questions, and so on…
Does anyone have any examples (I’m struggling to find beginner example docs) or guidance about how they’ve structured similar projects?
Thanks in advance.
