I am an avid note taker. I have adopted the Cornell Note Taking system as my method of choice. I just purchased the Outline app and I am having great difficulty creating Cornell based notes with the Outline app.
It would help me and others who use the Cornell system to have the ability to create text blocks that contain 2 (or more columns).
I tried many ways to create Cornell notes with Outline Plus and each method had serious issues with it.
For example, I created a separate text block for each cue and another text block for each of the corresponding notes but I could not align the two text blocks.
I also tried to put all of the cues for a section of notes in the same text block and all of the corresponding notes in a separate text block. I then tried to align the notes with their respective cues. This was extremely maintenance intensive as I had to try to align the notes with the cues using returns and spaces. Again, I could not align the notes with their cues.
Below is an example of what I am trying to accomplish:
Cornell Notes Example
Cue 1 | This is the note for cue 1.
| | Syntax: type(object) |
| | |
| | Example: |
| | names = ['George', 'Bob' |
| | list(names) |
| | |
| | Output: |
| | <<type 'list'>> |
Cue 2 | This is the note for cue 2.
| 1. List item 1
| 2. List item 2
Cue 3 | This is the note for cue 3.
o Cue 3.1 | This is the note for cue 3.1
o Cue 3.2 | This is the note for cue 3.2
This a summary of the notes taken on the Cornel Note Taking system example.
END OF EXAMPLE
The cue column of the text block is essentially a label for the note. The note column of the text block may or may not have formatted text, code blocks, lists, etc.
Thanks for your help and let me know if this can done in the current Outline app (iPad) or if it will be a feature in a future version of the software.
