Does anyone have a feel for the differences between Storyspace and Tinderbox? I’m primarily interested in notes for writing. Technical writing, which is probably my only credible excuse for picking up a pen, and short stories and novels because there is a noisy Walter Mitty in my soul.

I would like to have a map of some sort - mind map, timeline, corkboard, something with references to notes - where a note can appear in more than one place.

That way, a note appears everywhere it is referenced and editing it in any context updates the source for the note.

Well, I was weak. Paid my upgrade fee, back to Tinderbox.

I remain very addicted to Devonthink. What I’m hoping to do with Tinderbox, mostly, is use it as a corkboard or mindmap.

If Devonthink had those view modes it would be amazing.

You ought to give Effie a try… still a new app, so in its early stages, but mindmapping is very nicely integrated into it. And the developers are very amiable. And it costs a small fraction of Tinderbox (in fact, it doesn’t cost anything at all at the moment). Also, it’s cross-platform (Windows, macOS, iOS).

I agree wholeheartedly. My primary criteria for outliner or task manger software is how well it sits on top of the data structures I built in DT (usually via item links) and allows me to change conceptual relationships and to plan how and when I make use of documents in the databases. I tried to use TB a while back snd, while I found it to be very impressive, it just didn’t stick for me.

Effie looks nice. I don’t think I regret the upgrade fee for Tinderbox, though. I’m looking forward to messing around with it, and I’m cautiously hopeful I’ll get a lot of good out of it, too.
