    No, So that behaves differently from just the 'Beta' switch in settings? 

    Have done so so will try it out.

    As have been kind enough to reply, I also see on Slack mention of commands such as (( or [[  . Where or what are they?

    TIA

    (( is for inline mirroring.

    [[ is for inline linking.

    Back-linking is ( still ) coming.

    THANK YOU! Mirroring is just AWESOME!
    This is one of the Symantec MORE features, which I have missed most!
    (just as a hint: MORE might also have some other good ideas to... hmm..."borrow" ;-) ).
    MORE info here: http://www.faughnan.com/more/index.html#MOREDoc

    Just a few small wishes...
    1.) when a node is mirrored, it should also be indicated in the bullet point of the mirrored "original"
    2.) the currently used diamond symbol (◆) isn't clearly enough distinguishable from the normal bullet (●) perhaps e.g. a circled bullet (⦿) could be used, instead?
    Or something like:
    ● = normal
    ○ = mirrored
    ◉ = Shared
    ◎= Shared and mirrored
    3.) when an attempt is made to delete a mirrored node, a warning should be shown
    or - even better:
    4.) all instances of a mirrored node should be treated equally, including the "original". There would not be an actual "original" location and the mirrored instances would not refer to the url of the original but all instances - including the original - would have an identical virtual reference "behind the scenes", which would stay valid as long as there are at least two mirrored instances. This would enable any of the mirrored nodes (including the "original") to be deleted without the risk of unintentionally leaving "dead ends".

    Keep up the good work!

    Completed nodes in a mirrored parent node seem to ignore the Show Completed mode (always show). Is that by design? I'm finding it a little confusing and keep toggling the Show Completed switch. I'd prefer mirrored nodes to act like originals...

    I cannot confirm the behaviour you are describing. Just tried it out and all nodes ( mirrored and original ) do behave the same and as expected.

    Thanks, Stefano. It is all working wonderfully again as I've come to expect with WorkFlowy.

    I ended up doing an uninstall, download, and re-install to get the windows application working correctly. I had some non-beta versions and a beta version installed, if that could make any difference.

    The mirror function is a tremendous upgrade! Definitely in-line with the whole workflowy approach to effective information management. Bravo!

    agree here, perhaps have it so the text is a different color?
