    Fractal boards?  And now the testing phase of transclusion?  You guys are on fire!

    After testing for a few hours, it's working great.  I did notice that the cloned bullets don't have the typical box outline when in Kanban mode, but other than that, I haven't run across anything weird yet.

    Some thoughts after playing with it for a few hours:

    • I can't seem to "zoom in" to my cloned bullets.  I can create bullets under the clone, but I can't zoom into anything in the "clone tree".  Not sure if this by design or just a bug. 
    •  It would be nice if there was a quicker way to get back to the original bullet via hotkey.
    • It would be nice if you can create a clone via the mouse. 
    • I can totally see why side-by-side  "multi-pane" views would work well for this (allowing you to see context and quickly clone things to a calendar list/board from a project list/board etc.) .  
    • This completely revolutionizes the "Forever Calendar" kanban method - I can finally have a running daily to-do list full of disparate tasks, yet still have bullets that retain their context within a separate project list - Brilliant!

    I agree - you guys are on fire lately.

    The cloning feature is just what I was looking for. I can have one list item with multiple different contextual views such as project context view, priority/urgency view etc.

    Keep up the great work.

    2. The parent of any cloned list will have a diamond instead of a bullet point

    Frank, it looks like it is the clone list that has a diamond. The parent list has a bullet point.

    This is amazing, Frank!!!

    This single feature just unlocked a myriad of new different possibilities in how to use WorkFlowy!!!

    This enables us to put the same one node in many different places now without having to deliver wherein our structure should be placed when its properties meet more than one possibility.

    Congratulations to the team for this new wave of radical improvements!!

    Great decision for the bullet being replaced by a diamond to signal that a node is a clone!

    It is such a minimal and subtle design decision while being super-powerful in functionality.

    That idea of formal simplicity to achieve conceptual complexity is why we love WorkFlowy    :)

    @Neil... you are spot on! I got text-twisted ;-)

    All fantastic suggestions... I'd love to invite everyone here to join the WorkFlowy Users Group on Slack if you are so inclined... the conversation was/ is quite extensive there: shoot me an email at help@workflowy.com

    You'll see the same/ similar requests and suggestions there (great minds think alike!)
