Dear All,

I know having the possibility of linking between nodes in different maps is a somewhat recurrent issue (e.g., https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/1158.page#4511, https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/630.page#2524, https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/204.page#539, https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/29.page#168). The screencast http://screencast.com/t/Njc2NTk0Z referred from https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/630.page#2524 partially addressed this (and works under Linux at least if using pcmanfm as the file explorer). However, it does not allow linking to specific nodes in the other maps, and thus is of limited utility with very large maps.

designVUE seems to have solved the issue, and this feature is available with what they call "warmholes". I tried moving maps between the current version of VUE and designVUE, but it won't work.

Is there any chance this feature (which is almost fully working) might be added to VUE in the near future?

Thanks (and thanks for such a nice piece of software).

On further experimentation, using the approach in the screencast does not work fully if we want to save and open in some other machine:

- If we save as interactive web page, the linked to map is not saved.

- If we save as a VPK, then the linked-to map is saved. However, if this linked-to map contains itself, say, PDFs, or links to other maps, then this PDFs or further maps (vue files) are not saved in the VPK (the linked-to map contains links to the original pdfs or vues).


Thus, this precludes sharing maps with links to other maps. I think the main problem is that any resources linked-to from maps beyond the very first one are not saved in the VPK.
