I frequently use the following work flow:
- Create an image plot from some data and annotate it with some thoughts.
- This causes me to think about what other data to get, so I create another plot, and annotate it with some more thoughts.
- Eventually these thoughts turn into a story, anchored by these images.
I’d like to use tinderbox for this, but I’ve had a couple of problems implementing it thus far.
Yesterday, with tinderbox 7.5.6, I was having a lot of trouble dragging (PNG) images into the text box (I was in outline view, if that matters). I would drag and drop, repeatedly, the image would never “take”: it wouldn’t show up in the text. It’s as if it wouldn’t import into my file. Occasionally, though, it worked.
I had put all my images into one note, along with text describing how to interpret that data. Should I use multiple notes, with one image per note, instead?
I’d be happy if I could use external image references instead of inline images, but my tinderbox is not primarily intended for export. I need to see the images inside tinderbox, even if they’re stored outside. Is that possible?
Thanks in advance.
