what's the limits of node size?

Postby Guest » Thu Feb 19, 2009 3:36 pm

Hi, I just start using CintaNotes two days before. It's very cool!
Does anyone test the limits of node size? I have tried to paste a HUGE txt (>300KB) into a node, then the CintaNotes stuck and run very very slow. I know 300KB sounds unreasonable, but I want no the limit.

And is there any size limit for the note file?

Hi,
thanks for trying out the program!

Maximum note size is quite large (I don't know the exact figure), but still putting in more than 100 Kb of text is impractical because CN is not optimized for this and will slow down.

As for the maximum number of notes, I've already answered this question in this topic:

CintaNotes Developer wrote:The theoretical limit lies at 4 billion notes. But of course that's theory) I've tested CintaNotes to run on a base with 10000 notes, and it runs fine. But for the current version I don't recommend running CintaNotes directly from the flash drive in this case - it will be slow. Right now CintaNotes keeps the whole notebook in memory and saves it to the disk each time something changes.
This is of course quite inefficient, and I'll change this in one of the next versions, where I plan to migrate to an SQLite database.

Hope this helps.

thanks for your reply, very helpful.

Yes, Beta M7 version, which will come out on March 1, will feature automatic backups, and the import feature is already available in the Pre Beta M7 version here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=78
