Hi, This is Mukesh, an aspiring software dev. Recently came across Joplin, and really think it is a great note taking software especially vim key-binds. I am slowing moving my notes to Joplin and started using it regularly.
I personally think 4 section to take note I kinda disturbing, It would be better if i could focus only on the markdown and hide the sidebar and note list also hiding them will give me more space to write note.
I am aware that we have shortcut for toggling them, but it would be more intuitive if we had buttons.
When I first started using Joplin, I didn't know shortcuts was available for hiding, and got annoyed by the small note taking area.
I notice there's a button in the same area to toggle the Outline plugin's pane, but no similar button to toggle the Favorites plugin's pane. I guess that would require changes by the plugin's developer?
Yeah, I agree that using keyboard shortcuts are way faster, but as new user I didn't know there was shortcut for toggling. Buttons would be more intuitive and we can also display shortcuts on hovering.
This feature will improve user experience of new users.
True they look similar. However they only appear after the user has found and installed the plugin themselves. As they were responsible for putting them there it is probably not quite as bad as if this was a feature of a plain Joplin install.
