I really like the drag and drop component of scapple; however, an embedded object - particularly a document - can become very cumbersome on the screen. Is there a way to just “placehold” an embedded document rather than displaying the whole thing?
For example, CMAP also allows connecting/embedding documents, but it places and icon on the node to show there is an embedded file. See their documentation (which is in a mind map) as an example:
There are times when what one wishes to embed really should become separate notes, and times when one wants to embed the source, reference, or something already completed - even another map.
I am not sure if Scapple can handle both types of embedded document, or how to get Scapple to do either - for example, perhaps link to a document rather than bring the doc into Scapple.
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
