The last time i wrote do Alfons to ask about the state of Notebooks for Windows i´ve´got a sense that this version was kind in maintenance and that it would depend on the demand of windows users to the app keep beeing updated…

re: Sounds like you’re using Windows, Karel? If so, you could also look at Notebooks

Yup, I’m a slave to MS :-/
I have not seen notebooksapp, yet. Thank you for bringing it up. I will check it out!

So I have just check the Notebooks (notebooksapp) and it is so close to what I would love to have, I could cry.
Sadly it has no symbolic links.
There is no visible difference between an hdd file and the app note that is kept aside. IMHO there should be a different icon for the app-based note.
It does not work with my old wacom mouse, but that is just my fight with time.
And most of all it feels, well, sluggish. There is a slight delay before everything happens.

Still, it is a beautiful concept. So close, but not just there yet :-(

Thanks for pointing it out to me!

P.S. also there does not seem to be any way to normally navigate through the app with keyboard only. That’s a bummer too :-(

There are a few mindmappers that have this functionality. For example, there’s the dView plugin for Freeplane: https://www.freeplane.org/wiki/index.php/Information_management_withFreeplane_add-on_dView(indexfile)  It even works with Sharepoint folders.

There was also a more traditional outliner developed by the KFTF research team that used this as the core idea for the outliner, i.e., every item in the outline was also backed by a folder. At some point it got renamed to Planz, but never moved beyond the prototype stage. See here: http://kftf.ischool.washington.edu/projects.htm
