If it's working correctly, when you make the new tiddler it should appear inside the TOC "tree". If it's appearing outside the tree then you are probably using a slightly older version of TW. With this mechanism, you could quickly make the outline of whatever text you are preparing, drilling down layer by layer. > 2) I don't think this will scale in TiddlyWiki like it does in Dynalist or > Workflowy. > I think many people would be able to get along with a couple thousand entries, and I expect it to scale to that. > 3) The children are not present when opening the tiddler the way child > notes are visible when zooming in to a node in Dynalist and Workflowy. > Guess I'd have to take another look at WF and DYN. > 4) What makes Dynalist and Workflowy so appealing is that every paragraph > of text is a separate node that can be reordered.

Obviously one guy working a few hours on a project can't do as much as entire teams of programmers. I'm sort of thinking it might inspire someone to take it to the next level. > I don't write this to be nitpicky or negative.

OK, I guess DL has a windows app, but it's kind of nice to get away from app's. Their Android apps unfortunately do not work on my aging mobile devices. I think images are important, and neither work with images without adding money. Overall though, this was just an experiment. I probably won't take it further unless some interest is expressed. Meanwhile I'll be looking with interest at what zemoxian, JD and the others come up with. Thanks! Mark -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "TiddlyWiki" group.
