Title: New Map View *inside* selected note?
Post by Jack Baty on Aug 13th, 2007, 11:49pm

I tend to bounce between map and outline views frequently. Most of the time, I select a note in outline view and wish to see its Map view. When choosing "New Map View" (or hitting command-option-M) that note is selected in a map view of the parent rather than the note itself. I then have to hit command-option-downarrow to get "inside" the note's map view. I'm sure this is completely by design, but I thought I'd ask if there is any way to modify this behavior at all.

Thanks,

Jack

When I open a map on a Note I see the map containing that note, which seems the obvious focus. When you say "...its map view..." I think you mean the map view of its children? I don't believe there's shortcut for that but if you want to see the children, why not simply select one of the note's children and open a map on that?

Thanks Mark. I could certainly select a child note first, but that would require me to open that node of the outline each time. I tend to navigate TB documents, see a (collapsed) note whose children I want to view as a Map and think, "there it is," select it and hit option-command-M. I then end up seeing that note along with its siblings from its parent's map view, which is one step away from what I wanted. In my mental model of Maps, Note = Map Containing Note's Children, which may be off by one :).

In map view, select the container and press down-arrow.

Testing shortcuts I find that Up, Cmd+Up, and Cmd+Opt+Up all expand map view. In contrast only Down & Cmd+Opt+Down drill down. Odd as I had Cmd+Down noted as the drill down shortcut. No big deal, but worth noting.

I've re-tested the key combos for aTbRef and updated the shortcuts. As this took some re-factoring of the shortcuts I need to re-synch the whole site so it should be complete < 1 hour from this post.
