The entry text doesn't show up. It's there but it doesn't preview or copy.

If you uncheck the parent, no children will be shown -- precisely because they are children.
if you wanted those bottom checkboxes to show -- simply move the "Discussion" folder out from being a child of the checkbox, and just move it under it as a sibling (ie make it a child of Simplicity).

I guess this is a case where using the program in it's unintended way causes problems. Maybe a request in the future?

I really don't get why this feature is necessary since if you want this functionality, all you really need is to check the parent.

I think we might still be having a miscommunication problem.  if you send me the configuration file for your tree ill make the change i'm suggesting and send it back.

You've told TFLM explicitly to hide the children when you uncheck the box.  The solution isn't to change the behavior of the program but simply pop the children out one level of indentation and put them after the checkbox as siblings if you dont want to do that.   There is no downside to doing that is there?  If you want to be able to collapse that group you can do that, just put the checkbox and the other folders inside a folder.

Its an important feature to be able to deactivate an entire subtree by unchecking the parent checkbox -- you wouldn't want to have to uncheck all children in such a case.

Here you go.

From my side, the downside would be with organizing the files. The reason I set it up like that is because I want that entry to link to the checkbox not to the main folder because I don't always want to treat those boxes as checkboxes but more as references to the checkbox rather than to the main folder entry.

This is what I had in mind:


I'm probably just being dense, but I'm still not understanding what you want to do and why.  If you could help me to understand I might be able to add a feature or something..

Nah, it's just a difference of usage. I understand that this is a convenience for users who use the Form Letter Machine purely as a regular copy pasting machine where as my usage of it is more of an outliner that would segment my entries, make it easier to read due to it's large previewing capabilities and make it easy to copy when I need to reference the information within.

Think of your image as a chain between the two folders where as for me, I did it that way as a chain from the sibling folder to the check box.

This doesn't get in the way when there's little information but as more information gets added, it would be more convenient for me to hide the entries under the discussion folder because the core idea is in the checkbox above it already.
