[tomboy-list] Note's Table of Content Addin

I like it as well - and I even like the way it works.

Manually tagging things means (more) work. It seems natural to me to
assume that fat/large things are relevant to the structure of the
note. And I'm no big fan of moving Tomboy into the editor/word
processor direction.

Since this addin only reacts on full lines of bold/large/huge
combinations I think it's rather ingenious, adding structure to lots
of notes instantly, without requireing any change to the contents.

Thanks for sharing this, I'll certainly give it a try!
