Two questions from a newbie who likes to start projects by jotting down lots of ideas in an outliner (or index cards) and only later begin filling them in.
Am I right that there’s no simple keystroke way of adding new topics in outliner that might not be straightforward siblings but daughters/sons or indeed aunts/uncles (ie one level down/one level up) of the current topic (subdocuments I think they’re called and whatever the opposite is)? Acta (of beloved memory) used to let you type, press command-s or command-d or command-a and keep going at the speed of thought.
I’m sure I’ll survive without this. I can after all drag them about, but I wanted to check I wasn’t missing something.
Second question. For no logical reason, I don’t like all those metadata columns in the outliner. I’d prefer only titlle and synopsis. I know I can get rid of the other ones in the view menu but I KEEP having to do this with every new outline. Is there not some way of saving the way I want the outliner to look and having that as my default?
Thanks for the product though. Can’t think why I didn’t discover it earlier. Not only does it look like it’s amazingly useful, but it’s a delight to discover that there are so many active users you can get quick answers to things.
