Not sure I’m going to actually answer that question with this brief post, but I want to share the above screen capture of a Map I put together in response to a thread over at the outlinersoftware.com forum. The originator of the thread asked if Scapple was the best app for “thinking on paper.” You’ll have to read his initial post to get the gist of his question.
Scapple is pretty good at “thinking on paper.” Whether it is the best is really up to the user. Everyone works differently. I might prefer Tinderbox.
But the discussion inspired me to think about the ways you could display information in a Tinderbox Map without requiring the use of key attributes or referring to the note pane. So I put together the above example. It is not intended to be exhaustive, but I think I’ve covered most of the territory. (I did this on my 13″ MacBook Pro, so the screen real estate was not generous.)
