Like other users, I’ve have repeatedly asked MN to fix the way it generates annotated notes in Study mode. Here’s what happens…
Whenever users annotate in Study mode, MN creates the title of the file as a completely unnecessary top-level title note. If you look at the annotated notes being created in Outline mode, you can see the havoc it creates. Namely, the top-level title note becomes a parent note to all of the annotated notes underneath it — and generally creates a messy note heirarchy that’s undesirably and problem. This problem with parent notes and the children notes created underneath them seems to reoccur through the annotation process.
It also seems that the MN creates annotated notes in a disordered way, going between creation date and page number. Combined, the existing way MN annotates notes in Study mode forces users to constantly delete the top-level title notes, remove any parent notes and indentations, and re-order the notes so that they always appear by page order.
All we want is for MarginNote to create annotated notes so that they:
-Eliminate the completely unnecessary top-level title note, which becomes an annoying parent to the notes;
-Eliminate / prevent other parent notes (unless users create them), so that all notes are unindented (i.e., they just line up in parallel);
-Create annotated notes by page order, as a default setting (unless users create them);
That’s it. Otherwise, it forces users to constantly fix annotated notes that MN generates.
