Multipe trees

Recommended Posts

Probably not doable, but I would like more than one document tree.

 

A single document could occupy more than one tree, which would allow me to print different sets of documents, from the same base group (only documents from the currently viewed tree would be exported/printed).

A number of word processors have a "Make Invisible" feature that allows you to "collapse" parts of the document when viewing or printing. But this doesn't allow you to rearrange sections of it printing purposes. I think what may be called for here (for now, anyway) is to maintain two separate documents. Cut and paste updates from one to the other. Delete sections in one or the other. And so forth. Terribly inconvenient, I know. Personally, I've never had a need for multiple trees, so I have to wonder just how common the requirement may be. Could be useful.

 

-Thoth.

Probably overkill really. All I really want to do is selectively print/export documents in the tree ...

Then perhaps only a Special Print function is needed. It might bring up a table with check boxes at each Chapter and Section. Deselect a check box and that part doesn't get printed. Sound okay?

Yep, that would do the trick, as long as you could save selections so that different they could be recalled later .... :huh:
