Text disappeared in Corkboard notes

Hey all. First, to Keith, great app. Thanks for making it a little cheaper for students.

I’ve got a project with 36 items (PDFs and a few txt docs) in the Research binder that a few days ago (I think yesterday) had the text of the pdf documents inside the notecards on the Corkboard. When I checked it today, it only has the title, though when I mouseover the info shows up in a tooltip.

I’ve got several other projects running, and all of them still display the text of the documents.

Not sure if this is a bug or something I’ve done, but I hadn’t made any settings changes that would have done this.


The mouseover shows you the contents of the document, which you see when you view the underlying document. Are you saying that the exact same notecards that did have content have now lost that content? What about in outliner mode? Or when you view the documents themselves and view the index card in the inspector?

Yup. It was there yesterday, but not today. Other projects that are similarly arranged with PDFs still show the content.

Good question. I checked, and nothing shows there either.

Nope - only the title shows up.

I’d be happy to send you the project for analysis, if you need it. I’m running Leopard 10.5.1 on a C2D iMac.

Sure, send me the project - zip it up and send it to support AT literatureandlatte DOT com.


This same problem has just happened to me: my notecards have disappeared from corkboard view, although the contents remains in the synopsis under Inspector. (There was no resolution posted to the original post describing a solution, but there have been 156 views.)

Resolutions only get posted if there are any as yet. If the synopsis appears in the inspector, then there’s no reason it wouldn’t appear in the corkboard - are you sure you have the right folder selected in the binder so that the subdocuments you expect are appearing in the corkboard? Could you please give more details?
