pop-out notes
« on: December 29, 2008, 02:54:12 PM »
Documents are often created based on notes. It's awkward that one can't view a note and document easily at the same time in OpenGoo. It would be nice if when viewing a note one could "pop-out" the note for viewing/editing into another independent window (similar to how gtalk lets you pop-out your chat window, perhaps).

I understand one can open several browser windows manually and navigate one to your document and the other to your notes. It's just the usability is not as simple/clean.

This pop-out concept could apply to all content types, actually.

Good suggestion, and thoughtful observations.

We had the issue identified, but the best solution hasn't proved itself yet. This is certainly a probable approach.

If you do that, it may be an easy step from there to allowing links to notes from documents... sort of like being able to write a note in the margin...?

That is a good idea too, Rob.

We have a lot of ideas and feature requests for notes & documents. Another request has been to be able to merge several notes/documents into one view.

It may even be necessary to evaluate if notes and documents are really different concepts.
