Tinderbox v9 Icon


Tinderbox can watch and automatically import notes from the Tot application. This is set up via the File menu.

Watching Tot creates a top-level container 'Tot' with 7 numbered child notes, 1–7, one for each Tot note. Watching Tot will import text from Tot, but does not sync to Tot. Thus, watched Tot notes are set as read-only as each refresh replaces existing $Text with the source Tot note's text.

The watch process also adds the 'Imported From Tot' built-in prototype, to the notes. The prototype sets $Tot and $ReadOnly as Displayed Attributes.

The 'Tot' container sets the $Tot attribute to "1;2;3;4;5;6;7". Removing any list item stops that Tot note being monitored, but the relevant Tinderbox note is not deleted. If a note for an unwatched Tot note is deleted, it is not recreated.
