Can you point me to the Curio forum?  URL?

I get a lot of good out of Devonthink for large libraries of PDF files and notes. Curio sure looks nice, though.

If I understand correctly, it doesn’t have to store projects in the cloud. Cloud storage is nice, and I use it, but anything that requires the cloud is not generally of interest to me.

Right, Curio at this time does not have an iOS/iPaOS counterpart so there’s no reason to store Curio projects in iCloud, unless you want.

Curio looks very nice indeed, and may be superior to the mish-mash currently serving my needs. There is a non-existent mind map feature I sure would like to get, though.

I call it “views.”

Imagine a mind map of the Hatfield and McCoy genealogies. It’s nice, but now you want to obsess over murders. Instead of making a separate mind map, you use File->New->View to create a view called Who Murdered Who. It looks like a blank mind map. If you create a new node, it will appear as a new orphan node in the master view, the family tree you started with. Or, you could include a node from the master view. That wouldn’t change the master view in any way. You could include all or a subset of nodes from the master view and link them in new ways.

Another view could be the improbable map of personal hygiene and hair care products the members of the feuding families favored. Another could be caliber of choice.

There is only one copy of each node, so as you added web page or external file links, or edited an attached note, that would be global. If you delete a view, you just delete one map of relationships, not any nodes. An option to also delete nodes not appearing in other views and without parent or child nodes in the master view would be a nice touch.

A view, in other words, would be a roster of which nodes should be included and a network of links.

How else could you explore the undiscovered relationships between Devil Anse Hatfieild and his bath salts?

Or, is this why I should conquer Tinderbox’s learning curve?
