If note name is too long

If note name is too long

If note name is too long. This option lets you ask Tinderbox to automatically expand notes that have been newly-created or renamed in the map view, if their titles are too large to fit in the current note rectangle.

This new options is especially nice for quickly making notes in meetings. The choices are:

  • Do nothing (default)
  • Expand horizontally
  • Expand vertically
  • Expand proportionately
  • Use smaller type.

The Expand proportionately option tries to use a smaller font size in order to fit in the available space. Manually resizing the note will increase the font size again, up to (but not exceeding) the preferred font size.

The Use smaller type option uses smaller type but it does not resize the title text if the map icon is later re-sized. This option will not make the type larger than the default size if the note is later made larger. Adornments are not affected by this document setting.

If this setting is used and a note is added in a view other than map view the appropriate map view is updated appropriately even though not currently open.

From v9.7.0, renaming a note in the text pane title box now expands the note in the map as necessary, if this setting is using any value other than Do nothing.
