My main concern is interaction between mobile and Tinderbox.
I’m looking into Tot for this too, but with Tot at the moment I’m looking for a way to start a new document from the iOS version. On macOS that is no problem, but on iOS I haven’t figured out yet how to get further than the typical 5 or 6 coloured buttons and add an additional document.
I know there is / can be interaction between Tinderbox and
- Apple Notes
and probably a lot that I’m not even aware of.
I’m absolutely not familiar with any of these working bi-directionally,
probably Devonthink-to-go should work this way.
Now one of the applications that I like to use a lot is iThoughts.
This works on iOS, macOS and Windows.
And you can have the same file open on all platforms and work on any of the 3 mentioned and the changes will propagate and sync.
Another very strong point of iThoughts is the fact that you can search accross ALL iThoughts files or only the active one.
With iThoughts you can also link e.g. a node to another iThoughts file or node.
This is extremely powerfull. The global search most of all.
Now I have seen posts about using grep to search TBX files’ internals, but to me that is a bridge too far.
As I quite easily pop open a new TBX file to make some notes and to work out some possible ways to interact,
The next thing that popped to my mind was, hey, can I have a single ToC.tbx file (Table of Contents) and link each note-entry to one of the many TBX files.
Which then leads to the question:
One Big Tinderbox Document?
Many / several smaller TBX Documents…
