Title: Nakakoji View always refreshing - how to stop?
Post by AndreasE on Apr 4th, 2013, 1:48pm

I would like to read the contents of several notes together as one text; notes that are selected by an agent. It seems the only way is to open a Nakakoji view for them.

The selection works fine, but when I open up the Nakakoji view and scroll down, the text jumps back to the top every second or so. I think it must have something to do with the refresh cycle of the agent: Is it possible to stop the agents temporarily?

Or what else am I doing wrong here?

I just don't want to take the whole route of exporting, opening the export in an editor etc. every time.

(I am working with Tinderbox 5.11.2, BTW)

Most likely it is either some agent working in the background (or the preview pane refreshing). Of course, the view wasn't designed for the purpose of review/reading, and for export you want up-to-date information.

For 5.x I think your only options are:
  • Export to text file and read that.
  • Click in the view's preview area, select all (Cmd+A), copy (Cmd+C) and paste into a new TB note's $Text. Delete the note when done.
Using an agent to achieve the latter task will actually just put you back in the same position re refreshes.

Thanks. I'll have to live with it. But good to know I didn't just miss the right button or attribute setting or the like :-)

If the refreshes arise from agent updates, try switching to manual agent updates while you're reading.
