Hi Sebastien,

Thank you for the detailed description on how you’ll intend to use such a tool, it really helps. Importing existing notes/draft documents is need not to mention a must must feature. Regarding seeing the connections between notes, I can see two ways to find the connections:

- Document tags. if two documents are tagged with the same tag there is a relation between them. This is the easiest way I think.
- Matching documents with excerpt (not only keywords) as you suggested, and this seems to be quite completed and it’ll need quite a lot of engineering work on it to make it speedy (You know I hate slow software ;-)).

Regarding the note cards, you sure have you preferences, but I’d like to mention that as a Scrivener-like writing software, a corkboard for arranging note card (index card) that is *tightly integrated* with the other parts of the writing system is a must :)
