As far as I'm concerned my scientific work is based first on a long term collection of informations, "long term" will say for years or even decades, second on specific project work.
For the first purpose I need Biblioscape as a software which is from beginning of use coherent in the way I collect and tag my informations, it would not be a good idea to retag all my information after six months because for example a new "topic type" is added or an yet existing one is deleted. Needless to say, that it is necessary that the software should be stable and bugfree and that I must have absolut (!) confidence in putting in my (hardly aquired) data and in refinding it perhaps after years. This is only given with a coherent princip of data collection. I know that this demand is not easy to serve because information management is constantly changing.
For the second purpose it would be easier to add new features because I can adapt the way I establish my outlines and use Biblioscape to write a paper.
That is why I need informations about the Category modul as:
1) When creating a new category on the right category pane, this category is not to be found in the Category modul, it is also not assigend with one of the topic map semantic classification, e.g. "Topic type", "Association type" etc. It should be.
2) In the Category modul I can assign subjects (or topics or in biblioscape "categories") to the specific semantic of topic maps, e.g. "Topic type", "Association type", "Association role type", "Occurence type", "Scope", but I can't create just a Topic. Am I'm doing something wrong?
3) Creating in Category modul a category as "Topic type" and deleting this category, the subject isn't deleted from the pull down menu "Type". It should be.
Sorry for this long discussion and thank you very much
