      Hi all:

      I think these ideas from Wayne deserve further consideration:

      > toolbar and menu options: Show/Hide
      > outline link text
      >
      > When hidden we see only (underlined):
      > display this text
      >
      > But when shown we see its structure:
      > [LINK:"display this text":filename.otl:
      > :heading] of [LINK:"display this text"
      > :filename.txt::"search text"]
      >
      > We need to also make sure the syntax
      > still allows searching forward and
      > backwards from the current point:
      >
      > [LINK:"display this text":
      > :search_text:B] -> previous instance of
      > search_text
      >
      > [LINK:"display this text"::5:BL] ->
      > Five lines back
      > [LINK:"display this text"::1:FH] ->
      > Next Outline Heading
      >
      >

      Maybe we'll find them in NTP 5.0 ?

        Hi Eric et al:

        I'd like to have color hyperlinks in all types of documents, as they are in
        Outlines. Perhaps an option?


        Regards,


        RS
