Thanks for that. I’m a bit surprised as I would have thought that with all those formats that can import items with notes (especially OPML and Bonsai), some existing users would have come across the need to see where the notes are in a very large imported outline.

It seems that such a function might be more common in one-pane outliners (such as Bonsai) than in two-pane outliners. I just noticed that WhizFolders doesn’t indicate either whether a note is empty (although Scrivener does).

Would you have any specific suggestions as to how NC could be used as a companion to Bonsai (or other one-pane outliners that can export OPML)? I’m getting a vague idea that NC could be inserted in the writing workflow somewhere between Bonsai and Scrivener as an intermediary, to organise the outline further and add some more meat onto the skeleton?
