Dragging from trash/save should cancel trash/save instead of dragging node
Ideal behavior would be that dragging can only be initiated from click-dragging the node, but not when click-dragging from a trash/save button.
The same should apply to expand/collapse.
Hitting Esc should also cancel any unfinished operation. This works for dragging, but not for clicking buttons.
Simple vs Expert mode
I suggest you cut down on concepts and features to a bare minimum. What is required to make your app work? Call this simple mode. Add an option to enable expert (or experimental) mode where the other 50 options are available (see Chrome preferences as an example). This should also reduce your getting-started/help text drastically.
Another similar approach is to do what Apple does. Expert customisations and features exist but you have to be somewhat an expert to find out how to enable them. Therefore, there are really good default settings and the people who have niche setups can still enable them if they really need them. This should also reduce your support because experts generally understand expert features better.
I suggest you make 'groups/trays', separators, cloning and scrolling functions either way easier to use and understand or take them out of the default UI. You can also simply remind the user a few days after use that there are more features to discover so that you can still promote these cool concepts. It's all about making the first experience more enjoyable!
I think you are onto a good thing! I was about to make my own plugin before I found yours so I am very grateful for your efforts and time spent!
Untitled Window in Ubuntu 12.10
The "Tab Outliner" window is named "Untitled" in Ubuntu 12.10.
Google Search not in TO
I am now looking at a Google search tab that isn't appearing in TO. I've scanned, looked at the location it should appear in, and even searched for the keywords in the TO window. I opened several windows as children from this search page, and they appear just fine, but they appear as children to the search window's parent.
I haven't seen this behavior before.
I don't know if this is related to the phantom tab bug I posted about a while back - a bug I still experience regularly.
Most likely it is the same problem. Close a duplicate for now
Close tab and add to TO
Is there any quick way to close a tab from chrome but add it to TO for later?
But it's planed and next version will have several different ways to do so.
Crashing in Linux
First, I think TO is fantastic. I use it on Windows with no problem, but when I run it in Chromium on Linux it crashes every few minutes.
I'm curious to know where to start troubleshooting this. Is there a log somewhere or can I collect a stack trace? I'd be happy to run anything if it would help to isolate the problem.
Make small-window mode
The hover-toolbar in the bottom left is a huge pain, though. My TO window is very narrow, and sometimes not very tall, either. Having an option to make these buttons 1: always visible, and 2: much smaller, would help me a great deal. Alternatively, a single button to make the control panel visible/invisible would also work.
can't move tabs in list or between windows
OS: Linux: 3.17.6-1-ARCH
When I click a node in the list and drag it somewhere within the node tree I don't see the nodes beneath highlighted nor the blue lines linking the nodes that normally appear. When I release the node in some place of the tree (eg. another window), nothing happens.
I'd say that it's not that I'm not doing it in the proper way, because in the laptop I use gentoo in, I can see how it works (and it's wonderful).
Any help would be appreciated.
And thanks for this great extension.
Is there a TO app for android phones? I would love to install it on a LG G4.
Dragging open tab into saved window shouldn't resize open tab
There is an option, "Restore saved windows in the original position and size." If you have this enabled, and you create a new window, then drag it into another SAVED window (with no tabs currently opened), it will resize the dragged window to whatever the size of the saved window was.
I think it would make much more sense if dragging an open window into a saved window would instead simply change the stored size of the saved window. This means that when you reorganize the Outliner with just a single window really open, it doesn't surprise you by resizing your (only) window.
My suggested fix would be to, when dragging something (the "Tab") in Outliner, detect if the window being dropped onto (the "Target") is currently open, or completely saved and closed. If the Target is completely saved and closed, and the Tab is open/visible, then overwrite the saved size in the Target with the size of the Tab. Visually, the Tab's window probably shouldn't close+reopen like it does now, but simply stay as-is.
