Two features of Curio 9 whose significance I am not grasping are the “album collection” and the “pinboard collection”.  First off, they seem to be the same thing with slight differences: floating parking lot windows to paste stuff into for later retrieval.  It appears these “collections” are only available on the page (which Curio calls an “idea space”) of the document where they were created.  They cannot be saved apart from the document, though they can be copied.

I would be interested in hearing what other users are doing with these features.

Korm, I guess you are not alone in finding the new two new features puzzling. Today, George posted on the Zengobi Forums, explaining the function of Pinboards and of Albums, as he intended them. Curious of what you think of his reply.

In purpose, the pinboard seems a lot like an adornment in a Tinderbox map, a place to corral related notes. I can see that being useful.

Thank you, Mark and Steve.

I read George’s posting and was a bit more confused than before.  I wrote there that “... the thing I find confusing, even more so after George’s helpful note, is that Pinboards and Albums are captive to the idea space where there were created.  The way they’re described, I would expect something that’s either universal to the document I’m working on, or even universal between documents.”

Steve—they are sort of like Adornments, yes.  Though Tinderbox Adornments have all manner of nifty things they can do depending on the action code associated with them.

I can seem some utility in grouping thoughts using Pinboards, (e.g. Day 1, Day 2) and then being able to move that group around, without having to stop and manual group those objects. If you want use a Pinboard in another idea space, you can always save it as a Pinboard Stencil and drag it into another Idea Space in your document. When I start a new notebook, I often copy a page of frequently used images, to pre-populate the Library in the new notebook. You can do the same with stencils across notebooks, although you need to resave them in the new notebook.

I do find the Album Object a bit more puzzling, given the inability to resize the collected images, other than it auto-arranges the inserted images.
