In the particular map I’m envisioning above (which is still a work in progress) I envision a triangular shape positioned in the center with containers positioned strategically around it. Each of the surrounding containers are linked to each other in ways expressing a conceptual interplay between them. Further, each of the surrounding containers relies on t
he triangular entity at the map’s center. While I can link the surrounding containers to each other, while using an image adornment for the triangular center of the map, because adornments do not link, I cannot link from that center out to the surrounding containers to express the interrelationship between the triangular center the external containers.
So, I noticed that I could accomplish the same goal (using a triangular shaped image adornment within my overall map and have it behave like a note) if adornments linkable (then I wouldn’t need a built in triangular shape). Are there technological reasons why adornments are not linkable? Can they not be made to be linkable? Or are there limitations inherent in the nature of adornments that prevent them from being made to be linkable?
If it’s possible to make adornments linkable, then not only would it solve “my current challenge” with this particular map, but it would open up a host of additional functionality in TB that could be leveraged in an unlimited number of contexts.
Pulling this off may create a larger technical challenge that I realize. I’ll certainly yield to your wisdom about how realistic it is to even consider.
Thank you for your hard work. TB remains one of the most powerful and yet flexible applications I’ve seen anywhere.
I also attached an image of the map under construction (note… no links from the center adornment outward to the outlying containers).
