Perhaps I’m being dense, but I can’t seem to get Hook to work with Curio and I don’t even see a script for curio in the list of Hook scripts. The three workhorses of my workflow are DEVONthink 3, Curio 14+, and Tinderbox (8.7.1, newest). I keep wanting to incorporate Hook into my workflow, but so far it’s just not happening.
I’m trying to develop a new curriculum for one of the courses I teach so we can get away from the students having to buy expensive textbooks. To that end I’m finding freely available public domain textbooks, white papers, newspaper reports, peer-reviewed materials, writing some of my own, etc. So whatever I find, I’m storing in DT3 until I have a chance to evaluate it. In Curio, I’ve been mapping out the course as it is currently taught and referencing the materials being used for the topics, etc.; I want to make sure I have good coverage by the new materials. I’m actually creating the course basis and evaluating the topic relationships and sequencing in Tinderbox. I pretty much build all projects in Tinderbox at this point; there is nothing quite like it.
I would like to be able to have a page in Curio that has Curio figure objects, etc., on it and a Hooked link to a specific note (preferably) or a container of notes (fallback), in TBX. I would also like to be able to Hook from both Curio and TBX objects/notes to specific documents stored in DT3. I can copy a hyperlink from a Curio object and paste it into a specific TBX note, but that’s not really what I want. I want to Hook from one to the other without having the link dropped into the TBX note text. Plus, that approach doesn’t create a link from Curio to TBX, only from TBX to Curio.
Perhaps I’m asking for the impossible, but it is likely I just don’t know how to properly use Hook in this situation, even if it seems it would be perfect for the job. If anyone can help me understand how to do this, I would greatly appreciate it. Please bear in mind that coding is not my thing, I’m a mere zoologist, chemist, environmental scientist who did some programming in BASIC about one million years ago.
