Probably am. Since we are dreaming anyway, I'd like "multiple panes". I
know this won't happen, but as said, I'm dreaming. What I dislike about
tree-view, in addition to the clicking-clicking-clicking, is that once
you've opened a node its content obscures the parent list of topics. The
way my memory works I need to see as much of topics/subtopics as possible.
I often remember if what I look for is high up, in the middle or low down,
but not necessarily exactly under which topic I put it. Not until I see it.
I mean like this.
Select a topic in the left window. Related sub-topics appear in the middle
window. Select one of those and sub-sub-topics appear in the right window.
One can scroll through the topic lists fast. That makes it possible to
review all sub-topics at a glance, and so on and so on. Oh well.
