Item Objects

Tinderbox Icon

You sometimes need to specify a reference to a note relative to something else, like the current note. Item Objects are a set of generic relative references, or placeholders to another single [sic] note whose actual identity is context sensitive. Item placeholders are written with lower case starting letters and intercapitalised if multiword; e.g. child, prevSibling. Usage is case sensitive.

The 'order' of notes, where referred to, relates to their sequence within the overall Tinderbox file. To see this order, expand all levels of an Outline, Explorer or Chart view. The order is the top-to-bottom ordering of the notes on a line by line basis; so the first child's children are ordered before the second child, etc.
