  • Clipping: possible error upon clipping
  • Tag sidebar: wrong tag counts after cancelled import
  • Import: Exception after canceling import
  • Editor: crash during paste
  • Editor: attachment item height shouldn't depend on icon size
  • Printing: "current view" now enabled even when there are no filters applied
  • Pasting HTML in editor now obeys Options/Clipping/Formatting settings
  • Tag autocomplete shouldn't disappear on BkSp, but continue showing appropriate results

Even though you clearly stated "Drag-and-dropping text" I couldn't resist to try what happens when I drop an image to a note. ;)

Well, it inserts some "not visible element" but that's not what I wanted to report - my point is...
Wouldn't it be cool to enhance drag-and-drop to attach such content (images from the browser, files from the explorer window) as an 'attachment to this note' and insert a link to this attachment into the text at the Position where we dropped it?

Maybe this is already planned but I wanted to share this idea because this would really improve an otherwise inconvenient process (save an image to the file System in the browser, open the attachment dialog, find the file, locate the position in the note text where you want to insert the link to this attachment, insert link).

Greetings

Interessting!?

Outlook inserts an 'invisible element'
Edge doesn't allow the drag-and-drop (shows a stop sign)
Firefox gives an error message (and tries to attach a temporary bmp file even though the Image is a png)

With Chrome it merely inserts the name of the image.

SUGGESTIONS to make drag-and-drop better would be: (1) if dragging from a webpage that the link to that page be captured; AND (2) that the first H1 tag or the page title be captured as the title of the note.

Love 3.7 and the drag-and-drop feature.
Best,

Congratulations on the new version, Alex! I'm always impressed by how small and responsive CN (still) is. And the link parsing in 3.6 and 3.7 has made a world of difference.

I just noticed a few problems have crept in again when using Shift + right-ALT to enter uppercase accented letters.

When editing a note:

    Shift-Right-Alt-A (Ā) Brings up 'Type to search (attachments?) by title'
    Shift-Right-Alt-U (Ū) Brings up 'Enter URL'
    Shift-Right-Alt-N (Ņ) Brings up 'Type to search by title'

    Shift-Right-Alt-L (Ļ) Marks the line as a list item, but only when following another Right-Alt-letter.
It would be best if these (and perhaps other) bindings would not be used on the Right-Alt key.

This is definitely planned. It's just that with such limited dev resources (atm basically just me and 1/4 of other dev) we can't do it all at once.
But we plan to gradually make CN more powerful with drag-and-drop support and with image handling.

2All: sorry for the long delay. Our server ran out of free space and notifications weren't coming. Already fixed this of course!

CN supports dropping a file. So it must be that Opera converts the dragged image to a file on the fly.
We'll support this properly in a future version.

Thanks for the kind words!
1) Agree
2) Page title, to match the clipping behavior

I'm afraid currently there's no way to do that. But if you write more details about your end goal, maybe I could think of some workaround.

Thanks, Gunars! We have to be pretty selecting on which features to pick for implementation. Good to know that we've hit a chord on this release.

I just noticed a few problems have crept in again when using Shift + right-ALT to enter uppercase accented letters.

Thanks for reporting. Ironically, this is a result of fixing a bug another user reported, namely that Shift+Alt+U/F/N shortcuts don't work with right Alt.
I'll see what I can do here.

Paste the code below into cmd.exe with \r\n and \n

for %f in (A B C D) do
(4 spaces)echo %f

Some console applications treat \r\n as the end of a command.

Several years ago I found that \n is the better for my usage and till now I don't know any reason to apply \r\n.

Ok.. How do you get text from CintaNotes - copy/paste from editor, copy/paste from notes list, other?

It's worth taking the time to explore all CN's features but now I do only simple things. Usually I copy code from CN's editor into notepad++ to apply \n EOL, edit it if needed and then paste into console. I would prefer to omit the first step. Thanks for mentioning that it is possible to copy/paste from notes list.

No problem!
I added your request to the roadmap: http://roadmap.cintanotes.com/topics/905-/

Please vote for it. If there are enough people that have the same need, it will collect votes and we'll change the status to "planned" and put it into release plan.
