Unless I have not been able to find it – I wonder if there is a way to create a composite from an outline view.
Here is my thinking:
I often have to review a pile of psychiatric records before interviewing a patient. I do interviews with two docs open on my desktop: a draft of the evaluation/interview record which will be edited and cleaned up and sent out as a report; I also need some sort of notepad open with notes from the records review and to take notes “on the fly” during the meeting with the patient. I have in the past tried to use TBX for this but the problem is that each note has to be opened separately to see the data. So if I made notes from five different medical reports, I would have to start scrolling through them to find that one reference to a medication or a medical condition or something. The result was I abandoned using TBX and use Scapple instead – I can see everything.
But I do like Tinderbox. It struck me that an advantage of Composites is that I can with those see ALL the notes’ content at once. However, creating them seems a bit tricky: as far as I can find, you have to do it only in map view via that careful parking of notes together. Can you highlight a group of them (e.g. command-click) and then do something to “composite-ize” them? Which, if it worked, could allow for some other notes to be added, and would probably allow one to make them from outline or even, say, treemap views, and not just from the careful parking together (so you don’t accidentally make one a container) in Maps?
