There is a bunch of useful new videos showing how to use Tinderbox done by a relatively new user, Michael Becker:

If you’re member of the Eastgate user forum, you might want to check out this list:

I am watching the videos to decide whether it’s worth the trouble to learn Tinderbox for my use cases. I am still not sure ...

Hi Steve,

Is there any way to display body text in Tinderbox’s chart view ?

To my knowledge, there is no way to show the note content in the Chart View pane. As I am unsure of the extent of your familiarity with Tinderbox I will point out that the note content is visible in the note pane to the right of the Chart View pane, so you can see your notes. But you can’t see them inline within the Chart View itself.

Thanks.I was looking for a replacement for a horizontal outliner. Right expanding mind maps and [multicolumn editing in scrivener]( https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=32005) did not quite work. I had forgotten about Tinderbox’s chart view, which is much closer to being a Tree replacement - being able to view the body text would have made it a complete replacement. Thank you for the excellent reminder.

Ah, I’d forgotten I still had Tree 2 installed on my main MacBook. I’ve just been playing nostalgically with it. It still works (although the display margins aren’t quite right – the top line is very slightly obscured. But everything else, including the exemplary PDF output, is fine.

And I’m reminded of why it was such a very nice app to use.

Ah well. All things pass, eh?
