Ability to refresh the Table of Contents


brodrigue

Idea

I love the new Table of Contents feature for big notes. It's also really cool that it's already linked and I can preview it and that I can collapse nested sections in the table! I can't find if this already exists but as I update the note, I can't find a way to refresh the ToC. It looks like I currently need to delete the old one and generate a new one. It would be great if I can A. Refresh the ToC when Hovering Over it (or a unique header titled "Table of Contents") or B. The Table of Contents dynamically updates based on changes I make to the note. 

Thanks!

There is alot here that hasn't really been thought through. EN chose to make the TOC links regular EN links with an extra bit to indicate the section. Regular EN links do update if you display them in "Title" or "Preview" modes. But if you do that every link is named as the name of the note.and no longer seems to work

Also, while you are exploring collapsible sections and internal TOC, you will find that a TOC to a sub section doesn't work if the main section is collapsed.

I hope these things will get sorted but I'm slightly concerned that EN have a "tick the box and then move on" approach to new features. So they sort of work, but could be so much better.

I agree but I am very excited about how quickly the Bending Spoons team is moving now. It's likely they are firefighting right now but I'm very curious to see where we are a year from now. I'm already moving away from my previous workarounds since the features we have needed for a very long time are finally being developed.

Oh, wow.. lol Sounds like a bug that needs to be squashed.
