Outliner with drag/drop reordering - part 2
@ihf this switch forces that all outlines of first level are without the outline number.
If you want to use it as a title, use only once. Do you want something else?
@cvp perhaps I am not using this as you intended. There were 2 use cases I was envisioning. One was to have a title (or whatever introductory text) followed by the outline. As far as I can see, the way to do this now is to turn off the 1st level has outline and then the 2nd level and beyond is the outline and 1st level is title. I’m not sure what you mean when you said “use only once”. If I turn off that option and trun it back on the title will be part of the outline. (Sorry if I am being dense about this). The second use case was to have explanatory text in other places in the outline (not just the title at the top). Again, the way I would do this now is to turn off the option and use the 1st level for the non-numbered text and use the lower levels for the outline. Is this how you imagined it, or am I missing something?
I know that undo/redo is not working and it is on your list, but once it is working again, would it be able to reverse the use of the 1st level is outline option?

used only once
If only at first row, it becomes a title.
would it be able to reverse the use of the 1st level is outline option?
You can always reset the flag on and select the same format
once it is working again
Anyway, if you want something else as title, feel free to describe your request
And please, tell me when you have installed the V01.09 so I can post a V01.10 to test the automatic install.
@cvp v1.09 is installed.
@ihf V01.10 and outline.versions with
Version V01.10 - outline text in event notes for Apple Watch will contain emoji for (un)checkbox
New version should be automatically checked, confirmed, installed by V01.09
@cvp with regard to the checkboxes on the watch. What I am seeing is an unchecked box to the left of every line in the outline. I may have misunderstood but I imagined that checked or unchecked boxes would appear next to lines with a checkbox in the outline.
@ihf you should see checked or unchecked box on the Apple Watch exactly like you see with outline.py, don't you?
Édit: only after an update of the outline with the new V01.10 of course
@cvp I think I see the problem. I was using an outline that has checkboxes on some lines , but not all. It also had the 1st line has outline turned off. It appears that the event notes have a checkbox whether or not it is in the outline.
@ihf you may have check box on some lines and not on other ones. But I agree I don't use the switch off/on about 1st level
@cvp I tried another outline which does not have that option turned off (all lines are part of the outline) but where some lines do not have a checkbox. The event notes show a checkbox on all lines.
It appears that the event notes have a checkbox whether or not it is in the outline
Sure event notes already up to date? There is some delay of sync between devices
The event notes show a checkbox on all lines.
Thus, you don't see an empty gray checkbox if there is no checked box in a line?
Could you post a screen capture of outline.py and of the Watch
@cvp Yes, the event notes are up-to-date and I see other changes but every line has a checkbox regardless of whether it is in the outline.
@ihf not a gray checkbox, you mean a checked box?
@cvp every line has an unchecked box (except those that are checked). In other words, if I turn off a checkbox on one or more lines, they still appear as unchecked boxes in the calendar event notes.
if I turn off a checkbox on one or more lines, they still appear as unchecked boxes in the calendar event notes.
Ok, I think that I understand now. Sorry, I had completely forgotten that we can turn off a checkbox. My app has so much functionalities 🙄
I'll correct this later.
Thus I have to support:
- no checkbox
- unchecked check box ◻️
- checked checkbox ✅
- due date set for unchecked 🕦
@cvp Yes, your creation has so much functionality that sometimes I forget all that it does (until I think of something I want to do and I realize you have already implemented it!)
@ihf How do you want I align a line without checkbox?
After some spaces?
Other emoji to show that there is no checkbox?
Ex: unchecked could be 🔲 and no checkbox could be ⬜️
@cvp Outline has become an important part of my “workflow”. I don’t want to think about what I’ll do if Pythonista were to stop working at some point.
@cvp I think that either no checkbox and aligned on the left would be ok as would a solid bullet.
