    Just for the record, I'm using the latest preview release (1.6.3). The first time I ran the script, Freeplane threw a standard error in the logfile: STDERR: Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" STDERR: java.lang.NullPointerException. It ran fine, so far as I could tell. I just reopened Freeplane and no errors reported at all. Q!

    Wow, Allan! Very impressive work! I use Freeplane with tool tips turned off because I find the little windows popping up to be distracting. This of course means that in order to see content of each of the content containers I have to click on each specific container to harvest any insights. Your application makes use of data within each container much more accessible and meaningful. My primary use of Freeplane is analysis of complex information. Your tool will make this use case MUCH more elegant...

    You've probably noticed that there are many triggers for filters, including a specific text string in any of the data containers (Node text, Node Details, Notes). Any uniqu and otherwise not used text string like [IMPORTANT] can be used to trigger filters. Icons. Attributes are a favorite way to create searchable conditions. Attributes are like labels for the node where you create an attribute and even assign it values, like an attribute could be called "NodeType" and you can assign values to that...

    Alexandre, Thank you so much for making the change! Works great! But I must confess that I just read back over my last message and (distressingly) it reads to me like I was expecting you to make the change. When I said: So I just added another test to your list to look for a Type value of "NOEXPORT" in addition to the triggers you included, I meant that I had actually added some code to yours to address what would fit my personal use case. I certainly didn't want to imply that you needed to do anything...

    Alexandre, I've got it working on my copy, so no need to add something that isn't applicable to your use case. I inserted this snippet at the end of line 67 (the line where you test for the presence of the two icons: it.attributes.get('Type') == 'NOEXPORT' I did something similar down where your script tests for the strings 's1, s2," etc.: // Test node TYPE Attribute. If value of "PrivateNode" is present, skip this node if (n.attributes.get('Type') == "PrivateNode") return It works (much to my surprise!).......

    Alexandre, Just FYI. I notice that the regular expression logic you've constructed to look for Icons doesn't trigger if the icon is set by Style rather than manually. I use an attribute called 'Type' which I use similiarly to your s1, s2, s3, s4 convention. The value for the Type attribute triggers specific styles which I originally thought I would just modify to include one of the specific two icons in your branch exclusion list. But it doesn't trigger that way, I guess because the icon isn't physically...

    Very cool! I thought that might be something like you describe, but I wanted to make sure I was understanding your process. I've used something like that too. I have a little script that offers a pull-down selection list that adds a specific attribute value for each selected node. Conditional formatting then changes the look of the node to match the attribute, very similar to your approach. One of the values I created is called "Private" and I use it the same way as you do--a way to create personal...

    Alexandre, Just noticed the provision you made in the script for hiding personal notes. Can you tell me a little bit about how you use that feature? Looks intriguing. Thanks, Q!
