Do you create a new document for every new project/thing you’re working on?
Or do you keep all projects in one document?
Do you have separate documents for Personal and Work related things?
I split tasks/projects between a few different documents. Currently:
- active projects (reviewed daily)
- reference (reviewed daily-weekly)
- shopping list (reviewed weekly)
- someday/maybe (reviewed fortnightly/monthly)
I’m keen to keep my task/project lists as functional as possible, which means making sure I only see what I need to see in the appropriate context. Tagging and folding obviously serve to support this, but I want to be able to review and work through an entire list without fatigue.
What you use FoldingText for?
Mostly task/project management at the moment.
Also: specific log files. e.g. People— one file per important person/colleague— anything in particular I need to remember for each of them, notes of milestones.
I draft ideas for pieces of writing in iThoughts and develop further with Ulysses. Sublime for coding. NValt for random notes and journal entries. Evernote as an archive.
What has been the most useful feature or aspect in FoldingText and why?
So many useful features. Extensibility, perhaps? Love the power that FoldingText offers, combined with a degree of flexibility. Some very minor tweaking, and I have a platform that meshes beautifully with the way that I think, and it’s all in plain text— thus very compatible with tools on other platforms (e.g. iOS).
Any other thoughts?
Just very happy that FoldingText exists. Big thanks to Jesse and everyone else who’s developed any of the plugins I’m currently using daily (Rob Trew, Jamie Kowalski et al).
