It's an unwanted side-effect of new code that tries to avoid accidentally-overlapped notes. We'll address it in the next release.

I can confirm this. I'm not sure if its a bug so much as an unintended consequence of logic trying to avoid overlaps getting caught in the loop. I'll pass this on.

When I send an adornment to the back or front, it moves out of position.

I don't use Simplenote myself (apart from infrequent tests). I believe a note added to the /Simplenote container in Tinderbox will result in a (new) note being synched to Simplenote, i.e. avoiding copy/paste outside Tinderbox.

Thanks for the note, Mark A. I assumed that was the answer. But did not know about the extra material on Simplenote. I'll check it out.

Tinderbox is a desktop app and to my understanding not, by design intent, a multi-location/media app. Although there is interest expressed in a 'lite' version for iOS, I suspect the problem is finding a reduced feature set that both fits the lesser horsepower of mobile devices and giving enough of a features set (and selling enough licences to make the engineering cost worthwhile).

The known info on Simplenote is here.

For non-iOS use, Dropbox works well for me. I use 3 different Mac in 2 locations + travel. You do need to remember to close TBXs after use, but it works well.

Does TB 7 improve syncing across devices? If so, how?

At present, using 6, I am only able to copy and paste. Generally, I use SimpleNote to create notes on my iPad/iPhone. Then copy and paste from the iMac version of such into TB. I presume I could copy and paste in the other direction--iMac TB to iMac SimpleNote to devices. But the cumbersome character of that has eliminated that use for me.

For serious syncing of matters that matter, I use Evernote. Would love to have similar capability in TB.

No, it is as you describe. Choose your Map, then use Edit menu-> Copy View As Image (Cmd+Shift+C). In Preview, use file menu -> New from Clipboard (Cmd+N) and the image appears a Preview document.  At this point the data is still vector (i.e. scalable). Saving as a PDF will preserve this. To rasterize, save as a PNG.

Or, you can paste from the clipboard direct into a vector (Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Designer, etc.) or a raster (Photoshop, Graphic Convertor, Gimp, etc.) image editor.

Note that not all elements of the map visual survive. I don't have a list but IIRC drop shadows and gradients may not persist. I suspect thinks like some of the newest display features list map container graphs may have light testing for export so YMMV.

I looked at this (http://mapself.com/index/Pages/BoxPressLearningCenter/BoxPressTutorials/Tutorial...) BoxPress page but essentially it refers to styling a map view in Tinderbox then exporting via the Edit menu as above.

Wakamatsu,

I downloaded and opened BoxPress, but the instructions seem unclear about how to convert a Tinderbox map into a PDF file. Are there specific instructions about how to do this?

Mark,

Thanks for the suggestions. I wrestled with the sequence until I discovered that I had go to Preview/File/New from Clipboard to see and save the PDF file. Just what I needed!
