[Ann] CintaNotes 3.10 Beta 2

Postby CintaNotes Developer » Sat Aug 26, 2017 6:01 pm

Aug 28, 2017 - Version 3.10 Beta2

In this version (in green - changes since Beta 1):

Features:
  • (PRO) Wildcard-based search Added "Use * and ? wildcards" option to the search box menu
  • (PRO) Wildcards support in Rules
    - Added wildcard support to all Equals, Starts with and Ends with operators
    - Auto enable wildcards for attachments, since filenames cannot contain wildcard symbols
  • Wildcards support in Find/Replace dialog in editor

Enhancements:
  • Duplicate title elimination on clipping If the first non-empty line of the note is also present in the title, it is removed.
  • Added Options/Window menu entries to control window docking
  • Added "app.mainframe.minimizeonctrlenter" cintanotes.settings option to control minimizing after Ctrl+Enter

Fixes:
  • Regression: clipping from IE or CHM files inserts raw HTML
  • Regression: clipping from recent versions of Firefox could insert raw HTML
  • Fixed "Previous application instance failed to terminate" error message appearing when restarting one of simultaneusly running CN instances
  • Fixed crash when copying note link directly after registering license key
  • Main window no longer activated after closing editor that had been opened from an LNK file

Beta 1 Fixes:
  • Highlighting in the main screen does not work when only one character has been typed
  • Incremental substrings of an already found wildcard match are hilighted upon "Find next"
  • Some wildcard matches weren't found upon "Find next"
  • Fixed regression that stripping prgoram name from note title didn't work

Download:
Installable: CintaNotes_3_10_Beta2_Setup.exe
Portable: CintaNotes_3_10_Beta2.zip

WARNING! BETA SOFTWARE! USE AT OWN RISK, AND ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR DATA FIRST!

After some fruitful discussion, decided to hold back with migrating to the "Whole words only". However one big question still remains: should * wildcard be allowed to cross word boundary or not? (Now it is limited to one word). There are pros and cons for both options, we need to decide which one is more useful for the real-word tasks. Thanks!

The html is fully cooked again, thank you.

When you limit to one word, you can still search for more words, just not in that order. For example sho* ks! will find the quoted sentence. But when you allow * to include spaces, it is more likely to find too much. If you are looking for spaces or spacers with s*s it will find the quoted sentence as well, but it was not what you were looking for. (Bad example, but very applicable to real-world cases.)

But it is not a problem anymore, because CN can search by regex just fine:

If only it wouldn't stop there. I searched for "ke*?*i?**??**o?*g?" and it found some notes. (Double quotes included.)

Hi Alex!
Stripping program name from note's title is working again :-)
Many thanks!
It's impossible to lead us astray for we don't care even to choose the way.

Great!

Yes, I agree. Better play it safe. We also plan to add regex support later for advanced searches, it will
cover the need.

But it is not a problem anymore, because CN can search by regex just fine:

Nice catch! Probably we'll have to control the complexity of the pattern somehow.

Bear in mind that it was doing it in Chrome also (the example I reported was from Chrome, not Firefox). Haven't tried beta 2 yet, so I don't know if this fixed the issue for Chrome also.

later...


...And have just installed beta 2, tried clipping the same page that gave me problems before, and now everything looks just fine, thank you! 8-)
