Within less than 1 month I ran into so many problems with IQ, that I abandoned it completely. Sorry to say I'm a satisfied "new user" no more.

I'm a new IQ user (a former Ecco Pro user) and I'm just beginning to scratch the surface of what IQ has to offer....
I've just registered for the user forums here, and received an email stating:
"To complete the registration process, you must add a comment to this thread, giving your username and a quick description of your interest in InfoQube: / http://www.sqlnotes.net/drupal5/index.php?q=node/69"
It seems I've been granted membership without fulfilling this requirement, but maybe I'll do so here anyway.
- Right-click on an item and select Favorite. Repeat to remove an item from the Favorites list.
- I create a project folder name & a boolean (y/N) field w the same name
- I create a grid with the project name as it's source of all data (this automatically collects all the data that is identified with the boolean y/n field of the same name)
- I use IQ's excellent clipper to import research as I find it. IQ faithfully reproduce web data including graphics very easily in MHT or HTML formats except when the data is hidden behind passwords as in HTTPS sites. Then a different procedure can be used.) I tend to favor MHT because it keeps all the data in one place -- yes, within IQ
- If I get a random idea, I can quickly jump to my journal, make a note & tag it with the project name field
- I re-arrange (drag/drop) research items & notes into some kind of pre-lim order. From there I can either print outline to html (children are collapsable) or join items in the outline, etc.
Updated (in blue) with an improved equation for blanking out a text field.
Here's a procedure that works fairly well for selecting an item in the Scratch grid, then working with it in your production grid. The surest way to link to an item in a preferred grid is to create the link in that very grid, or to move it there.
So I created two new fields to accomplish this.
