Outline as sidebar or popover?
Hello I would like to have a kind of an document outline as a popover or sidebar. Maybe a taspaper document could be an idea. I`m not a big programmer... Could anybody help me here or got an idea?
Ole, you're a saint. Not sure if it's just me, but I can't scroll that sidebar if the text contained within it extends beneath the keyboard's upper edge...
Regardless, Editorial's continuing to evolve as one of those apps that gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling when I think about getting work done with my iPad. Thank you.
And is there a chance to have a sidebar showing local pdf file? (like in PDF in Browser). I was trying to rework Wikipedia sidebar, but couldn't force webview to show a local file. I would really appreciaty any help
Bouncing off the idea of a sidebar outline, is it possible to have a fully-functioning outliner in the sidebar? A simple one of course, but one that lets you create the basic collapsible hierarchy of notes.
import ui # html from http://www.w3schools.com/jquerymobile/tryit.asp?filename=tryjqmob_lists_collapsible html = ''' Copy the html text from the left pane of the page at the url above and paste it here. ''' web_view = ui.WebView() web_view.load_html(html) web_view.present('sidebar')
If I understand what you want, then here's one I wrote earlier: Sidebar Live ToC.
Do make sure you load the Select Range workflow - this is needed.
- It shows table of contents, based on headings, for the current document in a sidebar panel, next to the editor.
- The preview is updated automatically as you type, and it preserves its scroll position.
- Links that you tap on in the preview select the corresponding heading in the document.
Thanks, Clare. I've actually been playing around with your ToC workflow for a few days now. I like it quite a bit, though for my needs it would be handier if: a) you could call up a ToC for a document other than the one you're currently in; b) you could see not just the header, but a couple of the lines following it; and c) if the sidebar didn't close when you click in the ToC.
Even c) by itself would be a huge boon.
And thanks too, ccc! I will definitely check that out!
ccc, that HTML outliner is excellent! Thanks again for that.
@necropol Are you on the Editorial Beta?
I found that when I moved to the Beta, the behaviour of Sidebars changed, and now, when opening a different file (or URL like in the ToC), the sidebar closes. This breaks any workflows that are used to keep open a list of links to files to open quickly.
Having said that, in the Beta, the built-in Editorial ToC indicates header levels, which the Appstore version doesn't. As a result, I'm just using the built-in ToC all the time anyway - and have just given up using the other Sidebars I had.
No, I'm just on the regular version of Editorial. Though it is running on a very cantankerous 1st-generation iPad mini...
Ah, I just checked and discovered I my memory of my experience with ToC was in error; the sidebar doesn't close as I move from file to file.
