Thank you ComplexPoint. I honestly keep using this software because I can have helpful people like you offer support and careful thought to questions and suggestions. Even if they disagree with mine, hahaha.
I will use Bike because of the same reason. I love the developer (who puts a lot of free work into being polite, clear, prompt and always helpful) and I think that the value proposition of that is invaluable. You are also one super helpful person. Thank you!
I would still like to see a little bit extra flexible with Bike and its format while keeping alive the spirit of outlines and the simplicity of them (as I am starting to understand them.) This is the example I am thinking.
This is the first thought of what I am trying to type.
This is the first try of what I am trying to type
In the first example, the outline model is preserved because the empty “parent” following the first possible thought is indented. I can still expand that and move around and I think it follows the spirit and purpose behind an outline. In the second example, that is lost since there is no indentation in that empty line and consequence, my second thought “has no parent.” In the first example the second possible thought is a child of the first one. Even if there is a blank space.
Now… Of course I can do that myself, hahaha. Just indent that empty lines. And if that is necessary, I will. I just think that if Bike can offer an option to do that automatically, those are the little details that make some software extra special.
I do use TaskPaper almost every single day, but all the documents I use are created by converting TaskPaper to MultiMarkdon and then maybe XeLatex-PDF’s because I don’t like the constrains of the format itself to present information to others. I also know that being able to be more flexible creating reports and presenting information is one of the things a lot of people request out of TaskPaper. Will Bike be able to do that?
Again, this are my two cents. No offense if they are taken or not. What do you think? I am open to feedback!
