Following much good advice, I am going to start learning how to use Tinderbox (having worked my way through the Getting Started Tutorial) by attempting a focused document. I have kept lists of Questions & Answers in other programs. I would like to do so in Tinderbox (this is truly one of the biggest note-taking tasks I have).
In short, I want to create a database of questions and answers using Tinderbox.
I’d like the following:
. Notes have a similar format
. Notes be grouped by specific topic (real examples: Zwift, Tinderbox, Lightroom).
. Topics be grouped by type (software, hardware, painting, woodworking).
. Answers be readily seen.
. Answered questions be visually identified (and/or grouped).
. Ability to indicate whether a question has been posted/asked elsewhere/of someone.
. Link or note of location/person posted/asked. Date of same.
. Link or note of where answer found.
. All quickly searchable.
Of course, this is just a start, but it seems a good place to start for learning as well. I have some sense of how to use some of the tools introduced in the Tutorial for the features I’ve listed, but (also of course) I don’t have the experience to lay out an un-brambled path towards my goal. Use a Badge to mark Notes that are Questions and change the Badge when answered? Via a Stamp? Create Notes with a Prototype? Automatically, via a parent Note? With Key Attributes? And how to as seamlessly as possible record a question when I have one while I’m working?
Just for starters .
