Tinderbox 4: Spreadsheets

Apple's new spreadsheet program, Numbers, provides a bunch of templates. One of them is a Travel Planner — a great example of the sort of wildly non-spreadsheet tasks that people tend to attempt in spreadsheets.

Anyway, it's great to know that you can just copy a table in Numbers and paste it into Tinderbox 4 and everything just works. The top row of labels maps onto a list of attributes. New attributes are created when appropriate, and old attributes are used when that makes sense. Each row becomes a note. Sweet.
