I would like to use this extension like "tree style tabs" of firefox:
There, you save about 40px of horizontal screen space by listing only the tabs of the current window. It could be simply done by giving the option to hide the "session" and "window" tabs. Then the element far left will be the first open tab.
This shows current behavior when creating a new Note, for example:
I think it would work better if it instead scrolled like this:
This lets you continue viewing the rest of the list when a new node is created. Whenever I create a note or window, it's usually because I'm going to put other things inside it, and put it in another category. Having to scroll back up when I create a Note feels a bit silly, especially with so much empty space being shown instead of the list.
There is the separate issue of how the editing prompt could be improved, which I've filed as a separate idea.
This is mostly a quick hack. One line instead of the day of work and tests... But it must be fixed of course, and replaced by a more polished solution.
I have just started using your extension, and it seems to be a very promising one. After Chrome crashed, I opened it again, clicked on Tabs Outliner button to open its tab, and double-clicked to open one of the crashed tabs from the previous session. So far so good. But then I noticed that there are two kinds of formatting in windows (parent nodes): Window (crashed Sat Mar 23 2013) is sometimes in grey-blue and sometimes in bold green. The crash happened around midnight. Are the windows that crashed after midnight in bold green to indicate that they are today's windows, perhaps? I didn't find any info on this in the documentation.
What's more important, though, there are some "Window (crashed Sun Mar 24 2013)" windows without any tabs under them. When double-clicked, they open a new blank tab. I am worried that they contained tabs that were lost after the crash. Is this possible? Any help appreciated!
Somewhere in the help, there should be an explanation of what all the buttons do; I'm not getting tooltips.
I guess I do not really understand what that "Clone View" is for...
From the tooltip it seems that it's just a Tabs Outliner window with auto-scrolling disabled. So, why not just a button or setting to turn auto-scrolling on and off?
Also, is the Clone View supposed to open in a usual Chrome window (at least that's the case for me)? If so, why?
By the way, thanks for your great work :)
Really enjoy Tabs Outliner since switching from Session Buddy. It's a better plugin overall. That being said I definitely "appreciate" the way Session Buddy seems like a proper extension of Chrome, its GUI definitely matches the default Chrome styling. Would love to see a second UI option that looks more like Chrome.
Thanks for the excellent work!
There is also possible to transfer the whole database to a new Chrome instance:
But please make a Ctrl-S backup before this, as during this you will lost the present data in the target instance of Tabs Outliner
