Activate Selection following a drop down.
Sep 13th, 2012, 9:13am
 
Hi,

I would love for a note to be selected following a drop down from a container note. At present, when navigating down from a container there is no active note selected and pressing an arrow doesnt change this.
I now know you can blind type and this isnt a bad solution. My issue with the blind type is that it seems a little slow and isnt a convenient solution when you are just starting a new project and dont have many notes.

I would love to be able to zip around and this can only be achieved if a note is actively selected following a drop down. Perhaps the default note that would be selected would be the top note in the map view or the centre note.

When you zoom into a note, your screen position is centered on the area visible in the container's viewport.

We formerly selected the first child note automatically, but this note might not be on-screen. Covertly selecting a note that isn't visible can be confusing.
