I'm in the process of doing a bunch of copy/pasting from the internet into my hierarchical-tree-note program of choice (Keynote
) and I was wondering if you could make the text pane more editor-like. Currently you can do a fair amount of text editing in CHS's window, but when you bring in portions of webpages from the internet, they dont copy well and you have to go back through and change the formating. I know, you can do this in the app you are pasting to, but CHS already has some cool batch features like removing linebreaks, whitespace, extra characters, etc. It seems kind of silly to use two different apps to collect data. In particular, the editing window graphic bug gets annoying (the one I mentioned earlier that caused garbled text after scrolling or heavy editing).
I know, I know, this points in favor of making CHS into a full fledged note program.... and I agree. And, since I've been looking around at the relative lack of progress on these apps maybe another one wouldnt be a bad idea! There are many out there but they all lack at least one major component. (Major component being, but not limited to, the following: intermediate text editing, table support, picture support, and perhaps the most often overlooked, full-featured import/export (if I can put the data in, I will more than likely want to pull it out again!).
So, just making this request for whenever you ramp up development on CHS again!
