Is there any way to preview text using custom css theme styles other than the basic one that comes with Tbx? I’ve looked around and even tried to replace the style.css file in the Markdown Tbx resource folder and nothing really happens (most likely due to the fact that I don’t really know what I’m doing). I’ve tried fiddling with the markdown prototype template but I am also to inexperienced with using Tinderbox to really grasp its functionalities.
I love Tbx’s ability to transform all kinds of data into structured information using all the different views (Maps, Outlines, Atribute browsers, charts…) and their amazing capability to collect (such as Agents), analyze (links, aliases, hover captions…) and visualize (adornments, shapes, you name it) all sorts of information. However, there is a very powerful way to structure, analyze, and visualize information in the text pane as well using custom markdown css styles, at least in my personal experience. I know Tbx focuses more on its function capabilities rather than “looks” (as I’ve read in some other post) but I find custom css themes tremendously helpful when structuring, visualizing, and analyzing information in the standalone text pane. Just as shapes/adornments can be customized in so many ways in Map view to better make sense of higher level information, so can customizable markdown styles can be used to visualize and make sense of lower atomic text level data in the standalone text view pane.
I don’t know maybe there is a way to actually do all of that, and if there is one, then maybe someone could be kind enough to give me a little guidance? maybe there are other ways to preview text in interesting and helpful ways? Below are some screenshots showing some styles and how they can be implemented in so many ways.
