Bike’s outliner mode is an important part of the long term vision. Outline mode has two functions:
Your edits working on outliner hierarchy. This is mostly realized now.
There is no text entry and so all the normal text entry keys are available for other uses. For example right now in outliner mode left/right arrow keys expand and collapse items instead of moving the text cursor.
I would also like to wait a while before adding more outline mode shortcuts to Bike. To make it work best the shortcut sequences need to be carefully considered and designed to work together. I think Bike needs to be around for a while before I’ll know how outline mode should work.
This post is to server two purposes. First just so you know what my goals are and second so you can make suggestions. Please reply with thoughts, commands, keybinding … how you would like outline mode to work.
This post is similar to Scripting Goals. I’m looking for feedback, but I don’t expect to start this work soon.
