[Taking] Sequential Hiliting Designations

Postby paginaflight » Tue Jan 26, 2010 3:42 pm

This idea was to make successive hiliting possible as optional feature that can be turned on or off.

For example, pressing CTRL would trigger a toggle of CTRL. Thereby, I could press +H and then
capture a line of text and it would show up in Headline format (<H1><H2><H3><H4> in sequence).
Then I could press +I and select a line of text and it could show up in italics. Then +B for
a line in boldface. I could assign the letters to refer to the tags myself so they would be right
for my note-taking purposes.

Once I have finished, I have made four sequential selections and then press +INST. Then
each line is copied thus to the individual Note.

Hello paginaflight and thanks for your suggestion.

I'm not sure I understand how this is supposed to be working.
Judging from the "Taking" tag, you mean either pressing Ctrl in some other app, the source of the text,
or you mean pressing Ctrl in the CintaNotes editor to replace the usual Ctrl+B and Ctrl+I shortcuts.
Which is that?

Maybe you could also provide an example of an application where a similar unconventional approach is implemented? Thanks!
