  2. Edwin,

    Your problem is the same as mine, being a perfectionist! Which comes with talent. But I changed my attitude and recommend it to you too. Let me explain.

    Do you know who is the most successful businessman as of now in worth and assets? Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO. Do you know why? Because he does opposite of what we do, known as Jeff Bezos method. He has small teams for each project and puts out “Not Ready Yet PROTOTYPES” to the market. Often his output has many versions. WE have so many prototypes, which go nowhere. Sometimes he fails, but most times he wins. Because he uses feedback to improve AND KEEP CHANGING OUTPUT FAST.

    Also, that constant output of not perfect products, creates: input, money, reputation and much more including ENERGY. Like Qi energy in Qigong. If you had put out your previous prototypes as new versions which people can buy or upgrade, already your company would be worth at least a couple of million dollars. That is the Qi when flowing. If not it is dead.

    I like this proposal. I like the top-tabs and the left dise-tabs too.

    BUT also keep the right column in this image:

    You can:
    1) change the names for METADATA to for example OVERVIEW and SYNOPSIS to BEATSHEET or something else and everything will be OK, no problems. TAGS and NOTES can stay, everybody uses them and they are standard.

    2) You can change the order they appear in right column, so tag can go top or Notes can go top or middle or where you like. Then NO PROBLEM again. Do what order you like.

    BUT KEEP THE RIGHT COLUMN with Metadata, Notes, Tags, Synopsis, just rename a few. That is what many are doing. JUST DO IT.

    Also this image is good, so can move columns to different position, and have many columns.

    If you want more ideas, email me so I can send it private.

    Good luck and put out prototypes as new versions.

  3. @The Wind,
    unbelievably, you know that so accurately! The bottom line is, I learned from the past, and I never stop, and I’ll show you with the final result. Another significant key factor that would help is that this software will be a tool I also use too.

    @Mark,
    It’ll be months. Thanks for and I appreciate your patience, I don’t want to say more, I”ll show the result at the end.

  4. @The Wind, you can send me your suggestions via email, just be prepared that I might reply to you later while I’m busy developing the software. Thanks.

  5. Edwin,
    Suggestion.

    How about the ability to merge two or more documents into one document.

    Usually, a paragraph is a document or several paragraphs and then when I want to combine i have to cut and paste into the main document.
    So
    Highlight two documents and merge into one.

  6. Mark,
    The suggestion makes sense, thanks.

  7. Edwin,

    Microsoft no longer allows Office 2013 to be installed and now with another OS failure (MS crashed my SSD with constant downloading of Creator Updates). I am in a pickle. Need 2016 support as soon as possible. Email me, please. Let’s chat.
