I have two (somewhat related) questions regarding workflow options.
First, let me explain my preferred workflow:
I have a an anchor (starting) to-do document in nvUltra that links to my current (4-5) project folders, which in turn links to various resources. This anchor document is the first thing I open every day.
I use two text editors (nvUltra and BBEdit), but when making Hook links to a file in one editor, the links don’t show up if I open up that file in the other editor (probably by design).
An option of making the Hook links in an editor follow the files regardless of which editor one uses would be useful.
I could of course make a duplicate set of links for the second editor, but that is double work. Another option would be to use Finder files as a starting point, instead of the files via the editors, but again that would be double work. And necessitates an superfluous anchor point to navigate to my intended anchor point…
I’ve seen some feature requests for having a anchor point when invoking Hook. Of course when starting up ones Mac, the starting point depends on which app/document comes in focus when startup is complete. More often than not that means I have to navigate to my anchor app/document to get started.
I get around this by using nvUltra (shift-cmd-U) and then it always has the last document in focus, but when needing more than one anchor point it seems more natural to let Hook be the “launcher” each day.
It would be nice to just invoke Hook and then there would be a menu item for one or more anchor points. In my case that would be nvUltra and that to-do document combo.
And then some way of switching (via Hook) between apps for the same document without the double work mentioned above
Any workflow suggestions to remedy my woes, would be greatly appreciated. I might have missed a point or two about the Hook functionality
Otherwise, treat them as feature requests.
