[Ann] CintaNotes 3.1.4 Beta 1

Hi,

First of all, huge thanks to everyone who took part in trying out the newest 3.2 Beta with the Autotagging Rules feature.
The feedback was extremely useful and I'm now deep in implementing the suggested improvements.
The feature is extremely powerful, but this also means that it can be dangerous, and I want to make sure that in no
case user data is at risk.

However, we're already for more than a month without a release, and we thought that now is a good time to pack all
the accumulated fixes and enhancements into a minor release. The feature set of version 3.2 was getting too big, and
having this release will also make it easier to pinpoint regressions if there are any.

Please note that this version won't understand notebook format of version 3.2, as it comes before it. If you desperately
need to use a notebook upgraded to 3.2, use XML export from 3.2/import to 3.1.4 to downgrade the notebook.

Thanks in advance for your feedback about this version! Since this is a minor release, there won't be 3.1.4 Beta 2, we plan
to release 3.1.4 Final in a few days.

May 10, 2016 - Version 3.1.4 Beta1

In this version:

Enhancements:
  • File attachments: add ability to save to disk multiple attachments at once
  • Export, Print: add ability to select/deselect all fields with a single click
  • Editor: add cintanotes.settings option to always copy text without formats ("editor.copyplaintextonly")

Fixes:
  • Notes list: RTL numbered lists were rendered incorrectly
  • Simplenote sync: synchronization reset note selection
  • Editor: possible std::out_of_range error upon saving
  • Tag drag and drop: fixed some highlighting problems
  • Tag drag and drop: tag sidebar didn't always handle mouse leaving
  • Hot keys: it was possible to set "Ctrl + Alt" as a shortcut
  • Import from a password-protected older format notebook required entering password twice
  • Fixed some large DPI sizing problems
  • Deleting section didn't delete autodeletable tags
  • Replacing tags was extremely slow on large number of tags and notes
  • Fixed PasswordEnterCancelledException after canceling adding note
  • Fixed PasswordEnterCancelledException when entering tags in note editor
  • Fixed "Failed to activate an already running application instance" when running second instance of CN

This version doesn't have the weird maximizing effect :)

I'll say go for simplicity :-p
[*]File attachments: add ability to save to disk multiple attachments at once

Very useful!! Now just need exporting them all at once when exporting notebook to .txt ;)

[*]Export, Print: add ability to select/deselect all fields with a single click



This is how it looks here:

not very efficient use of space if you ask me, not possible to use upper row to deselect all either.

Yep, same here - definitely a change in the 3.2 stream which causes this bug. Hopefully Alex can track it down.

Thanks for taking a look, guys! The information you provided is very useful. Have already found one possibe reason of the maximize bug. Will be fixed in 3.2 Beta 2.

And forgot to add, the problems with Export and Print will be fixed as well.

Export/Print Dialog looking fine on my Windows 7 system.

Thanks for adding this feature :)

Export dialog works fine here too on Win 10 - date's screenshot looks either like Win XP (which I can't test on right now, I'd have to install a VM to do so), or some sort of classic theme for Windows (I'm assuming it is Win XP, due to the places bar on the left of the screenshot - later Windows removed that, and I don't think even a classic theme would bring that back). So maybe an XP specific issue?

* I still got an "Failed to activate an already running application instance" error, when running 2 seperate 3.1.4b1 instances contained in 2 seperate directories. I was however able to run one 3.1.4b1 alongside another version.

* Recent databases don't get saved in the File menu in this version :!:

PS usbpoweredfridge: it appears that way, but I got the scrollbars on W7 with classic view too.

Odd. The Export dialog for 3.1.4 Beta 1 is definitely ok with the normal Windows theme, though I have just noticed that the 3.2 Beta 1 export dialog is a little different.

Note the lack of the entry beside Export Fields in 3.2 Beta 1 where you can click to deselect all the fields at the same time. I will post this to the 3.2 Beta thread as well, just in case it is an unintended change.

There indeed was a slight problem on WinXP. The final version should hopefully be ok.

That's another issue. The directory doesn't matter.What matters is the "Allow multiple instances" setting of the second instance that you are trying to run.

* Recent databases don't get saved in the File menu in this version :!:

Probably that's because the license key is not registered in this instance.

Huge thanks for your vigilance, Chris! Regressions can always happen, but luckily it's not the case here - 3.2 Beta 1 was built earlier than 3.1.4 beta 1 (they are on different development branches), and hence doesn't yet have the export dialog improvements.
