Automatic resizing of notes between outline and maps


I notice long note names in outlines do not resize automatically to fit the note name when shifting to maps.

I have my Document Setting/Maps set to “expand proportionally” for “If note name too long”.

Is there any way to have this behaviour automated? And, if so, I assume this would work for aliases too?


They will be resized automatically when created in maps, but not when created in other views — big notes in that case could expand to make it hard to place them. You can adjust their size whenever you like with Note ▸ Expand Proportionately .

Is there a programmatic way to do this? Can I have an agent regularly call this on all notes? My notes’ names are short and I do not use composites (I have turned these off via $NeverComposite=true), so if two notes now touch or overlap that is not the end of the world for me.

– Thanks!

Not at present. You can set $Width to a fixed width that is “big enough”.
