Hi guys,
a new version is there!

Oct 15, 2012 - Version 1.8.2

In this version:

Enhancements:
  • New "-d" command line option to enable detailed debug logging.
  • Editor: no space trimming on manual save, only on closing.
Fixes:
  • CN version 1.8 and 1.8.1 didn't start up on some PCs.
  • Titles are no longer lost on merging (even if note text is not empty).
  • Wrong sorting order of tags with some national symbols.
  • HTML export: eliminated another reason why notes could get truncated.
  • URLs of the form something,co.XX were not recognized.
  • Fixed "Postcondition failed" error that could come up on clipping.

Download:
Installable: CintaNotes_1_8_2_Setup.exe
Portable: CintaNotes_1_8_2.zip

Hi Alex,

thank you for the latest update.

I always do a manual save (Ctrl+S) before closing (ESC) the notes editor window, in which case trimming will not happen. To achieve trimming now, one has to leave the note modified when closing the window :( I think there is not really a "good" way of handling this. Still it appears to be more attractive to me, to first do a manual save and then having CN save the note a second time (when closing the window) in case CN recognizes and removes trailing spaces. To behave more nicely in the latter case, the modification date should not change, because it is an internal CN change not caused by the user.

With the test note i provided to you the truncation does not happen anymore. However, i do see underlined text in places where this was not visible before. Ok, i will handle the issue by manually removing the unncessary formatting.

Saving alone the note won't reflect the change. You must close and reopen the note to actually see the correct highlighting. This is true for the following extensions that i use co.th, co.uk and co.nz.

The issue "CN crashes, if the Link-field points to a local file" is gone; I can't reproduce it anymore!! So debug logging isn't possible, sorry.

Many thanks for fixing that!!

Yes ! a new version... :?

Well i just try this last version of CN and it's better than before, ...
1 : I launch CN, then it hang and the debugger(VS2010) dialog box show up.
2 : I launch debugger,...wait....wait...ok finally debugger is here.
3 : I start debug session of CN...and now CN run ok.

Well it's a bit tricky to launch CN but it work :D :-)

Hope 1.8.3 will run more easily :lol:

PS : I'm not trying to hack CN (i love it and i bought a license), but i'm developper and it seem that debugger is the problem :D

Edit : The "1.8.2" has updated the database i use and can't be opened by 1.7.2. Well hopefully i have daily backup 8-)

I think we can fix this problem in the next update. CN will trim spaces even if there has been no changes since the last manual save. And of course it shouldn't change the modified timestamp.

If you think this formatting is wrong, could you get to me these samples please?

Yes, you are right. This is an unfortunate effect of caching link locations. However the alternative - to always recognize them on the fly - would make simple scrolling much slower.

Well this seems to be good news, although I usually prefer to know what's going on. Hopefully it won't turn into a Heisenbug ;)

Hmm that's quite strange behavior. I tend to think this is again due to upgrading to the new version of the Enigma Protector.
Please try running CN with the "-d" command line switch. Does a "log.1.txt" file get produced?

Yes, that unfortunate, sorry.
Since you can run 1.8.2, you can export all notes to XML and import them into 1.7.2.
