Thanks to all for this discussion. I also missed the separate windows, but for a different reason: when I'm taking notes with Tinderbox I usually have Safari or Preview open reading a document, viewing a video, etc. and would use a fairly small Tinderbox window for writing the note. The tabbed view takes up a lot of real estate on a Macbook Air and I was finding it difficult to take notes.

Lots of good ideas about using the Text Window, etc. really helped out. And being able to rulers to create lists, preview HTML exports, insert special characters (helps in writing equations) has made Tinderbox an even more powerful notetaker.

Penny's case sounds like a good season to see if the v5 clip-to-Tinderbox service could be made to work for v6. I should note I've not idea how possible that is but I'll have a tinker.

Multiple windows, positions preserved, is one of the greatest assets of TB and essential to the Tinderbox Way philosophy that valorizes free-form.  I always have two columns of three outline view windows on the left and right “margins” of my screen. In the center, various text windows. The poetry-inspiring freedom of notes INSIDE a map view certainly has an analog in the freedom of windows on the desktop.

Stipulating again that TB6 is full of great new elegant and convenient improvements, I agree that approximating the TB5 function of making it easy to see several windows at the same time, and to preserve that arrangement between sessions, would be a further plus.

I think this is work in progress. To a degree it needs to be iterative and the solution is better for letting people see and make input on the process. For instance whilst it might be nice for window to eventually be able to toggle away one side's pane completely, moving the splitter bar over is good enough and probably less important in the queue than say, preserving multiple window states. The latter is actually more nuanced a task than imagined.
