Title: Export Selected Note: sometimes grayed out
Post by Ralph Alvy on Jan 15th, 2015, 1:27pm

After reading Mark's section in his book (Tinderbox Way) on exporting, I finally understand, I think, how to do it. I see I need to attach the export template to a container name in my outline. Fine. That works. I'm using the OPML Template successfully. That said, I find that Export Selected Note is frequently grayed out when I am about to do the export. When that hapens, I fiddle around with the outline a little (maybe detach the template and re-attach it, or expand and then collapse a note, etc.) and then Export Selected Note is available again. I'm not sure I see the pattern that gets Export Selected Note available, or the pattern that results in it being grayed out.

Okay. I found the pattern. Expand and Collapse (or Collapse and Expand) the container with the template attached, and Export Selected Note is no longer grayed out.

Expand selected note will be enabled when
  • a note is selected
  • the view pane (not the text pane) has the keyboard focus
  • the note is exportable
